Rhode Island Black Business Association (RIBBA) 7th Annual Awards Gala

You are cordially invited to attend our 7th Annual Awards Gala which benefits the Scholarship Fund and helps make college dreams come true for some of Rhode Island most deserving students. In additional, you are supporting community/small business development and job creation. Sign on as a sponsor, purchase tickets, purchase Ads or reserve your VIP table.

Since our inception in 2011, we have held an Annual Awards Celebration to honor small business owners, local leaders, volunteers and our members while celebrating another successful year. Honorees are not simply small business owners and supporters of RIBBA. They are driving job growth, committed to community and embody our mission of empowering others. The event showcases the high achievements and volunteerism of our members, partners and supporters. The entertaining evening includes keynote address, awards/scholarship presentations, silent auction, dinner, networking and much more.

2018 Honorees are:
Keno Mullings, Owner, The Mullings Group
Dorothy Silva, Founder, DEMCO, LLC
Christine Paige, Owner, Bliss Salon
Esther Price, Executive Director, St. Martin de Porres Center
William Cedano, Met High School Graduate 2018

This event is one of Rhode Island’s signature events in Fall. The Gala is an optional black-tie event. The Theme for this year’s Gala is “Power of Inclusion – Maximize Success.”
