Our Mission

Annually, June Archer & Eleven28 Entertainment celebrates the power of family, friends and community, honoring the past, the present and the future.

The 100 Galas, consisting of 100 Women Of Color Awards and 100 Men of Color Awards, recognize the contributions that these genders of color in business, education, entrepreneurship, entertainment, government, service and the impact they have made on the lives of people throughout the State of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts communities.

Our goal is to provide financial support for programs that support the advancement of young men and women of color. A portion of the proceeds from these events support scholarships for young men and women who graduate from high school and plan on attending College, leadership and mentorship programs.

We believe these individuals should be honored for their achievements and celebrated for their accomplishments, along with their family, friends and support networks.
