The empowerment of women refers to an increasing spiritual, political, economic educational, social and gender strength of an individual within the society. Women face multiple challenges with these issues all over the world. Nonprofit organizations play a key role in promoting female empowerment in these areas. 522 Event Group recognizes that when you empower women, you empower the world!
Hub City Sneaker Ball III Goals:
1. Support local school-aged youth in need by donating over 1000 pairs of shoes provided by our guests and supporters. Specifically, we’re focused on raising girl and gender-neutral shoes this year.
2. Donate $4000 of event proceeds to a local non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment of women and girls. Our aim is to see that all girls and young women, regardless of ethnicity, income level or social status, are nurtured and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
Our purpose is to continually provide the attention, awareness and support our community needs to improve the lives of those affected. We aim to increase our donations each year and contribute to multiple community nonprofit organizations annually.
The Boujee Boss Pop-up Market inside Turtle Creek Mall will be taking shoe donations year-round. You can also give digitally to our community focus on the empowerment of women and girls below by clicking the "Donate Now" button!
The mission of Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence (MCADV) is to bring about social change through advocacy, technical assistance, and public awareness.
The mission of Jubilee Havens is to provide safe haven, a place of refuge, for victims of human trafficking in the state of Mississippi.

522 Event Group donated nearly 500 pairs of shoes collected at Hub City Sneaker Ball 2021 to Hattiesburg Public School District.
On 5/22, 522 Event Group, LLC donated $587 to Kuntry Kidz! Initially short of our goal of at least $1K, Jump-a-Roo of Mississippi immediately pitched in and donated the additional $413 to meet that goal! I’m most thankful to be able to provide this amount to KK providing youth with positive exposure, tools and encouragement to maximize their academic achievement and personal development.
From the ground up, we organized Hub City Sneaker Ball in celebration of a birthday milestone for the sole purpose of giving back to the community. We’ve collected over 450 pairs of shoes and counting, crushing our initial goal of 50.
With $0 financial event local or corporate sponsorships, through friends, family and individual supporters’ monetary and service donations we were able to host this event without suffering the financial loss once anticipated. And for the very first event, that’s a huge accomplishment and proof that every ounce of help you offered, no matter how small helped!
We’ve all witnessed the birth of something special that will positively impact our kids and community directly and indirectly for years to come!
