Join June Archer and Eleven28 Entertainment for an exquisite evening of live entertainment, refreshments, dancing, and special awards of recognition.
Come celebrate the progress that pioneers, educators, service men, politicians, entreprenuers and tastemakers have made in their professions, and the invaluable contribution these men have given to our communities.
A portion of gala proceeds will fund Science Center Exploration Camp, Scholarships, and Community Activities for our youth ages 6 to 19. We seek to remove barriers that limit participation in educational, extra-curricular, and community endeavors. Participation in such activities improves access to higher learning, fosters community responsibility among our youth, and promotes a healthy social environment in which our young men deserve in order to thrive.
Mission Statement: To recognize men of color in business, education, entrepreneurship, government and service and the impact they have on the lives of people throughout their communities.
