We are just a few weeks away from the Kentucky Derby and events are beginning to roll in as the city prepares for the greatest two minutes in sports. The 100 Black Men of Louisville Derby Scholarship Gala is one of the premiere pre-Derby events and I have confirmed that on Thursday, April 30th, the gala will have Grammy Award winning R&B, Soul & New Jack Swing group, Black Street featuring Teddy Riley. The gala will be held at the Galt House East in the Grand Ballroom at 7:00 p.m.
Red Carpet begins at 6:15 p.m. along with the opening of the lounge area and bidding on the auction. At 7:00 p.m. the doors of the grand ballroom opens followed by the program and live performance for Black Street featuring Teddy Riley. Guests will hear hits like “No Diggity” and “Before I Let You Go”.
Kevin Wigginton, President of 100 Black Men of Louisville says “We are excited about this year’s entertainment but I’m more excited that we as an organization can create such a great event that in turns goes right back into this community to assist our youth on some many levels. We are definitely partying with a purpose and that’s what it’s all about. I hope everyone comes out and has a great time.”
