100 Black Men of the Bay Area hosts 30th Annual Scholarship Benefit and Awards Gala – December 8th – San Francisco Marriott Marquis

The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area are excited to invite your company to join the ranks of Salesforce, Lyft, Wells Fargo, Union Bank, Oakland A's and Kaiser Permanente in support of its organization's efforts to provide needed services and assistance to the greater Bay Area's African-American community.

On Saturday, December 8, 2018, the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area will host its signature 30th Annual Scholarship Benefit and Awards Gala at the San Francisco Marriott located at 55 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA.  The evening begins with a reception at 6:00pm, followed by awards and a dinner program at 7:30pm.
It is with much gratitude for the generosity of numerous Fortune 500 corporations, as well as countless companies and organizations, who have partnered over the years with the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc.  This support has allowed us to:
  • Award more than $1,500,000 in scholarships to students attending prestigious institutions including Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Spelman, Morehouse and Northwestern;
  • Mentor more than 300 at-risk youth, many of whom have become role models for their communities;
  • Sponsor over 20 health and wellness programs, including cancer, prostate and HIV screenings, designed to highlight health issues that disproportionately affect the African-American community;
  • Host an annual 100 Black Men Tommie Smith Youth Track Meet, which showcases the athletic ability of African-American youth ages 6 to 18;
  • Organize 60+ seminars in the areas of entrepreneurship, environmental awareness and technology.
Historically, the gala has attracted more than 1,000 of the Bay Area’s most distinguished African-American residents.   The fundraising goal for this year's gala benefit is $500,000, and we are hopeful your company will join us as one of our scholarship sponsors to ensure this year is our most successful.
As a major sponsor, your company and its branding will gain access to several thousand leading members of the African-American community as a visible supporter of an organization that has established a 20-year tradition of providing invaluable educational, health, mentoring and economic development support to an under-served population that can benefit greatly from your generosity and corporate commitment.
The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc. is proud to be recognized as one of the preeminent African-American organizations focused on improving the quality of life for African Americans. The organization’s impressive membership ranks reads like a “Who’s Who” of Bay Area men, and is comprised of prominent doctors, business owners, educators, media personalities and politicians. The group has a deep commitment to the community, and it focuses on five primary areas: Educational Scholarships, Youth Mentoring, Leadership Development, Health and Wellness and Economic Development.
As the demand is great, the hope is that your organization will help the 100 Black Men of the Bay Area continue to provide needed services, educational opportunities and support for its community.
