About this Event

An elegant affair to celebrate and acknowledge inner-city residents who strive for positive change in the City of Poughkeepsie. Our purpose is to raise money for programs, non-profits, and resources essential to the education and prosperity of local youth.

Our inaugural Black Excellence Community (BEC) Gala, powered by Community Matters 2 Inc. and Voices of Tomorrow Empowered, look to benefit the students of Poughkeepsie High School (PHS) and the surrounding communities. These two organizations, established in Poughkeepsie, aim to provide mentorship, encourage community participation, and educate participants with life skills that will empower the young men and women to become future leaders. Proceeds raised will be utilized for the creation of academic scholarships for college bond students of PHS and assist in funding for the aforementioned organizations.

The events festivities will take place at the newly renovated Revel 32 (located at 32 Cannon St. Poughkeepsie, NY) on October 26, 2019. The event will look to bring a variety of local organizations, businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals together to establish new relations and garner support for local business. This annual event will gather minority professionals, entrepreneurs, and influencers in a night of opulence to share different expertise, celebrate their culture and give back to the communities they've become successful products of.
