The Inaugural Cocktail Gala was hosted at the Parlor Cocktail Bar.@parlorden. The Parlor den is a black owned business that has two levels of beautiful art with an intimate setting. It was a night of unique cocktails, one of them had a Christmas theme. Drinks sponsored by Bacardi. The professional waiters walked around with hors d’oeuvres and served the guest. There was also a silent auction and fundraiser. Matt selected this venue because of the black excellence and the aesthetics was the right fit for the Gala Cocktail fundraiser. DJ Bluue @djbluue had the crowd dancing and Kari Epps @kariepps gave us a vibe with her voice.
