BMYF BLACK EXCELLENCE BALL & SILENT AUCTION

BMYF’s Annual Black Excellence Ball & Silent Auction

Each year BMYF’s efforts are to give the attention that our Black youth deserve to let them know they are valued, respected, loved, appreciated, and destined for greatness. We celebrate our youth’s Black Excellence at this epic event – “The Black Excellence of Honor”.

In addition, this BMYF event is to recognize those individuals, institutions and organizations of our community that have dedicated their efforts to humanitarianism, education, leadership development, and diversity, which are the core commitments that embody Black Excellence.

The silent auction is our end of the year event to showcase our BMYF youth’s Activism thru Arts creations and give the public an opportunity to bid on the Are. The coffers raised during this event will be utilized to fund our various programs. All work from our youth will be rewarded with scholarships.
