Gala for a Cure 2020, consisting of a series of virtual educational and entertaining events, is Youth Creates’ ardent way of advancing cancer research. The team of youth garnered support from doctors, educators, government officials, and business leaders. Together they hosted ten sessions addressing numerous topics and collected $8,000 to donate to Cancer League of Colorado, a volunteer-only nonprofit organization dedicated to funding cancer research.
Stephen Zhang, Founder and CEO of Youth Creates, is the chair of this event. “Philanthropy work is a significant aspect of what we do”, said Zhang. Their 2019 version of Gala for a Cure featured performances by youth talents and professional artists. In March, the team jumped into action and organized a PPE drive, benefiting thousands of Colorado health professionals.

Youth Creates is also committed to bridging needs and community resources. During this unprecedented pandemic crisis, Youth Creates hired high-quality teachers to help students with their interrupted schooling. “We welcome and make it affordable for students from disadvantageous backgrounds. We are here to help”, claims Zhang. Youth Creates donates its proceeds to local charitable organizations. Learn more at youthcreates.com.
