Why WOULDN’T you want to dance the night away in sneakers and support a great cause?
The 3rd annual Change Our Future Sneaker Ball is coming back to Philly for another year of fashion meeting philanthropy.
Founded by NFL safety and former Philadelphia Eagle Rodney McLeod alongside his wife Erika, Change Our Future drives inspiration in local communities through enrichment initiatives and impactful opportunities to build bright and hopeful futures.
The event brings together people in the community to come out dressed up to the nines including their freshest pair of kicks to raise money for Change Our Future. Previous funds raised from the event helped go towards projects like “12 Days of Christmas” and Rodney’s “Next Man Up” program.
Since the staple fashion event’s inception in 2021, the annual event raised over half a million dollars to go towards communities in Philadelphia and Indianapolis. Change Our Future continues this year striving for more.
“It’s a great night to bring people with high fashion, high energy, but more importantly people who are for the cause and for the mission at hand and as I stated earlier that’s really focusing on our next-generation forming the generation of leaders to come. The leaders of change. The difference makers.” Rodney said in a previous interview.
“I think after last year, hearing such great reviews and experiences that people had at our event, they were having fun and dancing. They were using the basketball hoops. They wanted more time of the event,” Erika said. “I think that is really, really heartwarming to see that not only what they came to was a gala that could’ve been just a snooze fest, they came and had a lot of fun and helped us raise money while doing it,”
