The AFRO 125th Anniversary Gala
Sat, August 12, 2017, 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM EDT
The Afro American Newspaper (The AFRO) will celebrate its 125th Anniversary this year. We invite you to join our celebration gala event to be held on August 12, 2017 at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland. We are expecting eight hundred people from the Baltimore/Washington area to attend the event. We will be recognizing the history of the AFRO as well as honoring individuals who, through their commitment and accomplishments, have contributed to The AFRO’s success throughout our 125 year history.
Established in 1892, The AFRO is the longest-running African-American family-owned newspaper in the United States. The AFRO reaches more than one and a half million consumers weekly through its multi-product platform which includes print, digital, website and social media. The materials in The Afro’s on-line archives, which include photographs, clippings, and other items of collectible memorabilia, are historically unique primary sources reflecting the rich culture of African Americans over the past one hundred twenty-five years.
We are seeking your support in helping us celebrate The AFRO’s rich legacy of preserving and promoting African American history and culture. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The AFRO’s commitment to supporting the community through its AFRO Charities programs.
Please join us by choosing to be a part of this historic and extraordinary event. We thank you for your consideration and look forward to your reply by 06/12/2017.
