The Association of Black Business and Professionals hosted its third annual Black Tie Gala at MGM Springfield Saturday night.
The event is a celebration of the outstanding and continuous history of Black business achievement in the region. The organization’s mission is to promote and sustain Black businesses through education, leadership, culture.
The organization, I Found Light Against All Odds was one business recognized. Stefan Davis, the CEO of the organization told 22News, “Over the years it’s been a joy to see people starting to respect what you do, especially when it comes from your community. When your community gives to you it’s like you’re getting there. You’re reaching more people, you’re reaching more youth.”
The association recognized ten businesses and professionals that have contributed significantly to the growth and development of the local Black business community.
