Who Should Attend


EFWBA is hosting our annual Community Awards and Scholarship Banquet event on Thursday, November 9, 2023. Our Awards Banquet honors outstanding businesses, organizations, citizens, and – most importantly – educators and students in East Fort Worth. We are excited to return to the beautiful Texas Wesleyan University Martin Center.

In addition to college scholarship funds, money raised at this annual event also goes to support early childhood literacy in Fort Worth.

We are asking for your sponsorship commitment to help us make higher education more accessible for the best of our most talented, ambitious and dedicated East Fort Worth high school students.

This year, we will present seven students with scholarships. We are naming the seventh scholarship in honor of Malcolm Wentworth and dedicate that scholarship to the outstanding graduate from Texas CAN Academy. Malcolm was instrumental to the success of our annual banquet and we want to honor his memory with this scholarship. This year we will give $10,500 in College Scholarships!

Networking Opportunity

This is your time to network with community leaders and business owners who support the Fort Worth Eastside.
