Advocating for and serving the youth in our communities. Together, we are making a difference.


The Extravaganza

An evening of elegance, entertainment and outreach. Our annual gala is your opportunity to support the David Amerson Defending Hands Foundation in style!

The Annual “Extravaganza For Charities” fundraiser will be hosted by the David Amerson Defending Hands Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by NFL Cornerback, David Amerson, to provide outreach, wholesome activities, scholarships and community service for youth in underserved communities.

Through youth camps, charitable events, community involvement, and mentorships, the Foundation helps youth better their standing and well-being in their community and society in general.

This year’s event will be a “Holiday Gala for Toys”. Through this event, we hope to raise monies to help support the goals of this foundation and provide gifts for children in need for this upcoming Christmas.

By sponsoring or purchasing a ticket to attend the gala, people will also provide support to the foundation’s other community service projects throughout the year that include: sponsoring back to school supplies, Annual Football Camp, Turkey Giveaway, Community Christmas Dinner and Christmas Kids and Family Giving.

This year’s event will be held at the Koury Convention Center and features “dress to impress” attire and everyone is asked to bring a Christmas gift for a child. The entry fee is $35 per person & $60 per couple. The fee includes: cash bar, plated dinner, live jazz band Sitchyashun and DJ FireQue. A silent auction, drawing and door prizes will also be held.
