Our goal is to raise $ 40,000 or more that will be used towards Venues, Advertising, Food , Marketing Materials , Meals for Volunteers & most important a Scholarship to be presented to a senior graduate .
Each year our expo finale is our CNYS Black Expo Gala which serves as an opportunity to honor and celebrate local change makers and leaders. This is a formal awards event that is hosted the evening of the expo . In the past this closing celebration has proved to be a place for locals to fellowship with the community leaders and to hear empowering words from our keynote speaker. The expo will also provide an opportunity for local small businesses and community-based nonprofits to build relationships and exchange information, encouraging collaboration and new business prospects across the Capital Region and nationally.
The organizers of our Expo are promoting positive black culture and healthy living through this one-of-a-kind forum. When you attend our event, you'll be:
- Educated-you'll have the opportunity to hear success stories from a panel of speakers.
