THE 2021 ADA GALA

In light of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our community, state and nation, The New American Dream Foundation (TNADF) decided to postpone its 7th annual gala (previously scheduled for September 19, 2020) and place all of its efforts on supporting the community as we fight the virus through its COVID-19 Hot Meal Program.

 

However, in 2021, considering the COVID-19 Vaccination program, we have decided to move forward with the Gala, with many social distancing protocols in place, with high hopes of an in person gathering but ready to deliver a virtual experience as well if the need exists.

We also believe that there is no picking up where we have left off, when the pandemic has completely reshaped our foundation and changed all our lives. So, the American Dream Awards this year will provide a much-deserved celebration of some of the “COVID-19 Warriors” that really stepped up during this time in our community.

There will be 6 Community Award categories:

• COVID WARRIOR – to an individual that led the fight against COVID-19 in our community.

•COMMUNITY WARRIOR –to an institution that invested in the fight against the virus.

• YOUNG WARRIOR – to an individual under 16 years old that sprang into action.

• HEALTH CARE WARRIOR – to an individual and or institution on the front lines.

• EDUCATION WARRIOR – to an individual that went above and beyond to support students.

•SENIOR’S WARRIOR- to an individual that went above and beyond to support seniors.

 

One American Dream Award Scholarship of $2,000 will be awarded to an individual 16 years or older,  who is an immigrant or a child of immigrants, living in the Fairfield County area, who faced many challenges along their journey to achieve their American Dream. The winner will be selected by the TNADF and the scholarship is sponsored by Ingersoll Auto of Danbury

ABOUT US

Tribuna Newspaper is a multilingual publication in English, Portuguese and Spanish, with the mission to build bridges and join cultures, by providing its readers with content that connects them with the communities where they live.

 

In the process of fulfilling that mission, Tribuna has come across compelling stories of immigrants, like its founder and publisher, Celia Bacelar Palmares, who migrated to the U.S from Brazil over twenty years ago and faced many challenges along her journey to achieve her American Dream.

 

On April 19, 2014, in celebration of its 15th Anniversary, Tribuna created the American Dream Awards Gala, an annual awards ceremony designed to recognize members

of the community who share in Tribuna’s founder’s story.

 

In 2016, the event's growth over the years sparked the creation of The New American Dream Foundation, Inc. a 501(c)(3).

 

To date, over $150,000 have been given in scholarships, awards and donations to the community through the event.

 

"The gala became an opportunity for all of us to
come together and go beyond highlighting the
cultural contributions of the immigrant community, and sincerely celebrate their determination in the pursuit of their American Dream above all else. The foundation is vehicle to create meaningful change for generations
of immigrants to come."
- Celia Bacelar Palmares
