The Gala is the largest fundraising event presented by NBAF, and proceeds from this event fund our 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 2012 Gala will celebrate A Ruby Evening with tributes to the legendary actress Ruby Dee. Guests will enjoy a gala cocktail reception before the main event, featuring film clips from Ruby Dee’s career and other special effects. The auction will be a special feature and guests will be treated to live music from the silver screen and Broadway. The ballroom will dazzle with “ruby décor” and The St. Regis Atlanta will feature its chef-inspired menu and bespoke service.
