At the gala we honor community leaders through a process of nominations and selection by committee. Award categories are the following: Health, Political Activism, Political Leadership, Faith & Equality and Chairs’ Awards.
The gala is always an evening of memorable celebration of community, dinning, libations, bidding, and dancing. Over 300 people attended our XII Acclaim Awards Gala last year. This year the gala will take place on Saturday October 13, 2012 at the JW Marriott Hotel.
