leave a comment »

On Thursday, September 18th at the pool terrace at The Hotel of South Beach, the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami (BBBS) Black Men’s Advisory Council will host a cocktail social to raise awareness on the need for black male mentors in Miami-Dade County. The event’s hosts include some of the most influential leaders in the community, including Sekou Gary of Gary Legal Group and son of famed attorney Willie Gary; DeMarco Morgon- co-anchor at South Florida’s WTVJ NBC6; Martin Burkett- legal counsel at Akerman Senterfitt; Alex Fraser of Fraser Financial Group; Rick Adams of IBM Latin America; and Gale Nelson- Vice President of Programs for BBBs of Greater Miami. There is no cost to attend the event, and guests will enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with the requirement that each guest brings along at least one male age twenty-one or older.

Developed to address the shortage of black male mentors in Miami-Dade County and to close the gap on the high number of African-American male youth left unmentored, BMAC hosts intimate receptions and events that personally connects the organization to potential male mentors in hopes of enrolling them as mentors. Since its inception in 2006, BMAC has been quite successful in its initiatives and looks forward to enrolling new mentors who attend the cocktail social.

The Hotel of South Beach is located at 801 Collins Ave in Miami Beach. Attendees must RSVP by September 15 by contacting Adam Effertz at affertz@bbbsmiami.org or (305) 644-0066 ext 253.
