Under the theme: Reflection and Reaffirmation, the organization will stage, dance, music, drumming and poetry, during its usual thrilling presentation, that is expected to attract a huge viewing audience.

It this vein, GCA, is hopeful, that donations would pour-in, since the organization is depending solely on financial contributions to help continue its yearly programs, to engage children, youth, and the community as a whole.
