Event description
Back by Popular Demand - 8th Honoring Local Heroes 'Black No-Tie" Affair. Who will be the honorees for 2019?

About this Event

For the 8th year, The “Black No-Tie” affair will recognize those who have worked to improve communities in southeast Michigan in the areas of Scholarship, Cultural Arts, and Community Enrichment and highlight a local Icon excelling in all three cornerstone initiatives. We celebrate these individuals and groups as they are "unsung heroes" in our community who like TOWF are committed to "Changing Tomorrow Today".

Comerica Bank will serve as our lead sponsor for this year's event. Past honorees have included Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, Greg & Donna Kelser, Challenge Detroit, The Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club, and many others fine individuals and organizations. Since 2011, we have recognized thirty-four amazing individuals and organizations with this special honor.

Announcing our 2019 Nominees:

Community Enrichment:

  • Alisha Bell, Wayne County Commission
  • Damion Ellis, Soulcial Scene

The Torch of Wisdom Foundation Board of Directors conducted a vote to select the top 2 nominees in each category. Each nominee will be recognized during the affair with the highest ranked nominee named the 2019 Honoree of the category.

The board of directors also select a special award to grant to an individual or organization that influences contributions in all three areas. We are proud to announce our Icon Honoree is Mayor Kenson Siver, City of Southfield.
