This annual event is meant to be a celebration of donors and an evening of inspiration for health care in Uganda. The title Pamoja, meaning "together" in Swahili, is intended to signify a unity between community members for the common good of basic health care. The Student Global Health Alliance (SGHA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization consisting of University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center students, some of which will be traveling to northern Uganda this summer. For the third year, SGHA is partnering with Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe who has dedicated her life to serving those affected by civil wars and violent atrocities in Uganda by operating St. Monica's Tailoring School. Funds raised from the gala will go towards lab equipment for the medical clinic at St. Monica's, scholarships for Ugandan health professional students, and some in-country expenses for OU students.

The gala will include dinner, silent auction, and an address given by Reggie Whitten, founder of Pros 4 Africa.
