Celebrating Our Cultural Kaleidoscope Annual Gala

Annual Enlightened Kaleidoscope Awards

Each year, MACC hosts a cultural awards reception to celebrate the diversity of our members and partners. The nation and our state represent a "salad bowl" of cultures. We are all Americans yet it is critically important that cultural identity and traditions are maintained. Interactive cultural entertainment and local ethnic foods are presented. The celebration is highlighted by presentation of the prestigious Enlightened Kaleidoscope Award. The award recognizes an organization or individual for their dedication to promoting health equity, providing culturally appropriate care and/or appreciating the richness of Ohio’s diverse populations. We encourage you to represent your heritage by dressing in cultural attire!
