LIVING LEGENDS GALA | MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY

The SOLD OUT Living Legends Gala, a fundraising event to support the Museum of African American History, was held Sunday, December 8, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston. “Black-ish” star, Anthony Anderson, returned as host and Four-time Grammy Winner, Esperanza Spalding, and Oscar Winner for costume design, Ruth E. Carter, both received the coveted historic silver cup to honor women making history. Co-Chairs Mark C. Touhey of Liberty Mutual and Paul Francisco of State Street Corporation led the efforts that contributed to the Gala raising a record breaking close to $500k for the Museum. Anderson had the audience laughing in hysterics during the program as he roamed the room to take selfies with attendees shaking their African instruments. About 350 Sponsors, supporters young and old, multi-cultured, well-heeled attended the Gala that featured a JOSH Wine Reception, a live auction with exclusive items, a dinner reception featuring Afro-Caribbean cuisine, and live entertainment. Event was produced by AJ Williams at AJ Events.
