2013 NBAF Gala

| July 26, 2013 | Parties National

On Saturday, July 20, The Gala, A Gathering of Colors, was held at The Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. The Gala is the largest fundraising event presented by The National Black Arts Festival (NBAF), and proceeds from this event fund their year-round programming—including film, visual arts, summer festival and performing arts, in addition to education and public programming events.

Each year The Gala is planned around a special theme. The 2013 Gala celebrated "A Love Note to Broadway" with film, dance, theatre, art and music. Guests enjoyed a gala cocktail reception before the main event in the hotel's Grand Ballroom. The evening also featured video presentations and entertainment with an elegant dinner especially designed to celebrate the Silver Anniversary of NBAF. The silent auction featured 25 unique, one-of-a-kind experiences for guests' bidding pleasure. The celebration ended with a dazzling After Party featuring a dessert buffet, champagne, music and dancing. Photos by Lahcen Boufedji.
