The Modesto Chapter of the American GI Forum was establish in 1969. AGIF is a Veterans and family organization and welcomes all Veterans to join. It is our goal to grow our chapter and to assist other areas to establish their own chapter. On Nov. 4, 2018 the documentary movie The Longoria Affair was presented at The State Theatre this was a great opportunity to see how American GI Forum became the organization that it is today.
The Black & White Ball is our annual fundraiser. The 2018 B & W Ball awarded scholarships to Veterans, students and teaches in our community. We increased our awards by 25% and hope to continue to grow our support to Veterans and our community.
In 2016 AGIF became the organizer for this time honored event. Through hard work, community sponsorship and donations AGIF was able to make this a 100% free community event. Free movie, kids games, entertainment, procession, Altars and more. We are confident that 2019 will be an even better celebration due to the support of our community and sponsors.
