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.

WHAT WE DO

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.
