The Equal Opportunity Awards Gala
The Gala is our most significant fundraising event of the year. More importantly, it affords us the opportunity to celebrate our Volunteer of the Year, MinorityBusiness, Corporate Leadership and Whitney M. Young Lifetime Achievement award winners.
And, the evening is always a celebration to remember, with good food and fellowship and top-flight music provided by acts such as Jeffrey Osborne, the Whispers, the Spinners, the Temptations, the O’Jays and En Vogue with this year’s entertainment being provided by Morris Day and The Time.
The Gala also provides an excellent opportunity for networking with top area business professionals, and an investment in a corporate table is a good investment for local businesses.
The 2014 Gala will be held on Thursday, Oct. 23, at the Knoxville Convention Center. Reception starts at 5:30 p.m. Dinner and entertainment begin at 6:30 p.m.
