Multi-platinum, award-winning artist Cece Peniston will supply the after dinner entertainment with a little help from New Mexico's own Cotton Club orchestra. Other special appearances will be made by Nikki Stanzione, KASA Fox 2 New Mexico Style Host, Davonda Bowens, and others.
The Divine 9 Panhellenic Council and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority are the primary sponsors for the Cotton Club Refined Gala (http://nmblackhistorymonth.com/
This gala is heralded as the finest, refined event this side of the Mississippi. According to Bowers, “The thing that I love the most about this event is that it is truly multicultural. I am just looking forward to having even more people come from around the entire state this year to "staycate" with us over the Valentine's Day, President's Day weekend.”
Tickets to the gala are $25. The New Mexico Black History Month Festival encourages all New Mexicans to learn about the contributions that African-Americans have made to the state and to the nation throughout the years.
