The Annual Scholarship & Awards Gala and BPOY Salute, one of Northeast Ohio's top black-tie events, will return this November with a salute to one of our region's top legal professionals.
Mrs. Robyn Minter Smyers, former Partner-In-Charge of the Cleveland office of Thompson Hine (2014-May 2015) and member of Thompson Hine’s Executive Committee, will be honored as the 2018 Black Professional of the Year (BPOY).
The 38th Anniversary Scholarship & Awards Gala will occur on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at the Executive Caterers at Landerhaven.
The Gala Co-Chairs include Margot James Copeland (KeyBank), Carole F. Hoover (Hoover Milstein) and Albert Ratner (Forest City).
The gala will raise more than $150,000 in support of BPACF's youth programs. Corporate sponsorships, tickets, tables and ads are available now through late-October.
