10th Anniversary ‘Celebrating Achievement’ Fundraising Gala

September 23, 2023 All day

Join us for a remarkable occasion as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary ‘Celebrating Achievement’ Fundraising Gala, hosted by the Black Business Alliance Peoria Chapter, WPNV 106.3 FM, and the Minority Business Development Center. Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 23, 2023, as we gather in the elegant Grand Ballroom at the Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino.

Over the past decade, we have been dedicated to fostering the growth of minority businesses in our city, enhancing the skills of both employed and unemployed individuals, bolstering the capabilities of black contractors, and utilizing our in-house radio station to raise awareness about critical societal issues. This milestone event is a testament to our journey, and we extend an open invitation for you to be a part of it.

As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, our mission revolves around creating positive impact. The proceeds from this event will directly support initiatives within the Minority Business Development Center (MBDC). This center serves as a catalyst for change by stimulating economic development and employment in underserved areas that have been historically neglected. By providing education, empowerment, training, and mentorship, we enable entrepreneurs, businesses, professionals, and job seekers to play an active role in transforming our community.

The past year has posed its challenges, yet we have used this time to refine our strategies and focus. Thanks to the generous contributions from supporters like you and state grants, the MBDC has undergone renovations. These enhancements have expanded our capacity to house classrooms, offices, and meeting spaces, creating a hub for contractor training, entrepreneurship education, IT skill development, and workforce preparation.

By lending your support, you contribute to an evening of empowerment, education, and recognition of remarkable achievements. We extend a warm invitation for you to be a part of this event, which offers numerous opportunities for networking, socializing, and forging valuable business connections. To ensure your participation, please submit your advertisements and commitments by September 1, 2023.

This gala presents an exceptional chance for your business or organization to engage with a targeted community. We have attached various sponsorship options for your consideration, each offering distinct exposure benefits. We encourage you to review these options and reach out with any inquiries you may have.

Your unwavering support has been the cornerstone of our progress, and we are immensely grateful for your continued partnership. Together, let’s create an evening that celebrates achievement, empowers change, and builds a brighter future for all.
