WASHINGTON - Aug. 6, 2018 - PRLog -- For the fourth year, the Black Alumni Ball will host near 2,000 black alumni from all over the nation on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at The Renaissance in Washington, DC. This year the ball will include hosts King Flexxa, Dominique Da Diva, Jae Murphy and entertainment provided by Johnny Graham & The Groove and Izzy the DJ.

This formal celebration of Black Excellence was co-created by Jonathan King who is excited about the growing success of the event over the years and the people who have decided to partner with support this event. "Something new this year is that there will be an inaugural class of black influencers dedicated to ensuring this ball's a success on so many different levels," King stated." The influencers will work closely to help promote and spread the mission of the event. The inaugural class of influencers are as follows: The Media Prince (International Media Correspondent), Krystal Franklin (TV One), Chey Parker (EIC of Everything Girls Love), Lauren Poindexter (Miss United States Louisiana), Jessica Washington (DC Politico), Frank Brown, Jr (DC Millennials), Le'Greg Harrison (Museum DC Owner), Sidnee Michelle (COMPLEX), Michell C.

The Black Alumni Ball is an annual event whose mission is to bring black alumni from all universities throughout the nation, including both PWI's (Predominantly White Institutions) and HBCU's (Historically Black Colleges and Universities),  for a night of sophistication, style, and fun. Founders and contributors are excited to take this year a step further by introducing the 2018 Black Alumni Ball Scholarship. This newly added component was created to assist qualifying high-school graduates in Washington, DC in lessening the financial burden of entering higher education. The Scholarship recipients will be awarded $1,000. In addition to the Black Alumni Ball Scholarship, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the North Star College Preparatory Academy for Boys PCS to assist in opening a unique middle school campus for Black and Latino boys. The academy's aim is to provide a safe environment where boys can find respect, support, and positive role models while utilizing their talents and gifts. In addition, four artists from the Washington, DC area have donated pieces of artwork that will be on display during a silent auction. Funds raised during this auction will go towards the Scholarship.
