Join Us For The 4th Annual Foundation Gala

On Thursday, November 29th, 2018, the Hargrove Foundation will host the foundation’s fourth gala, an annual fundraising event that celebrates the organization’s support of education and humanitarian programs. The gala will be held at the Renaissance Battle House Hotel & Spa in downtown Mobile and will begin with an invitation-only cocktail hour for VIP sponsors. At 6 p.m., the evening will continue with a reception, followed by the dinner and program at 7 p.m.

Since its inception in 2012, the Hargrove Foundation has supported hundreds of charitable organizations, donating over $1,075,000. In 2016 and 2017 alone, the Foundation distributed grants totaling over $550,000 to causes including health and human services, sports, the arts, education, and culture. Donations made by members of the Hargrove team are matched dollar for dollar by Hargrove Engineers + Constructors — doubling the impact of contributions made.

This year, the Foundation will raise funds to support the Hargrove Adaptive Toy (HAT) Project, an initiative that focuses on retrofitting toy vehicles according to the specific needs of mobility-challenged children. Each vehicle is designed so that a child can use it to practice driving, a requirement for a child to qualify for a motorized wheelchair through insurance. Engineers, designers and other technical members of the Hargrove Engineers + Constructors team volunteer their time and expertise to support the HAT Project, creating the redesigned vehicles.

Presenting this year’s keynote address is Frank Abagnale, one of the world’s leading authorities on anti-fraud and security practices. Abagnale is the subject of Steven Spielberg’s film “Catch Me If You Can,” based on the story of Abagnale’s life. Depicted by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film highlights Abagnale’s life as one of America’s most infamous con men, embezzling millions of dollars by posing as an airline pilot, attorney, professor, and physician — all before the age of 21.

After recognizing his highly-specialized skill set, Abagnale became an asset to the FBI and has been associated with the agency for over 40 years. Now, Abagnale consults with Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, and government agencies about embezzlement, forgery and security practices.

This year’s celebration is a tribute to the use of innovation to positively change the world around us, impacting the quality of life for those within our communities. As a partner of the Hargrove Foundation, we invite you to support the efforts of the Foundation as we impact the Gulf Coast, one wheel at a time.
