Second Annual Black Excellence Gala


As the Black Excellence Gala Coordinator of Ethos, I organized the Second Annual Black Excellence Gala, a formal event to honor exceptional black faculty, students, and alumnae and honor Kathleen Daly ’80, an alumna who died of an asthma attack. I chaired a committee of nine members to book the venue, catering, entertainment, and a photographer, collect RSVPs, nominate and select Black Excellence Award recipients, and allocate $10,000+ budget for vendor payments, decorations, invitations, programs, and etc. 130 guests attended the Masquerade-themed Gala, which included a cocktail hour, dinner and awards ceremony, and after-dinner dance.
