Annual Gala a Night to Remember

On behalf of the BPACF Scholars, Board of Trustees and Staff, we thank all the sponsors, donors and attendees for making the 2018 Scholarship & Awards Gala a success!

The event raised more than $165,000 towards the BPACF Scholarship Fund and youth programs. Your contributions will enable the foundation to support our scholars with financial assistance, internships and professional development workshops.

The Gala was an amazing opportunity to see scholarship, philanthropy and commitment to professional excellence in action.

The foundation hosted an audience of 650 of Northeast Ohio’s top executives, business owners, community leaders and engaged young professionals.

The event included a tribute to Mrs. Robyn Minter Smyers, the 2018 Black Professional of the Year.
