Manifest Magic ProudlyPresents:
Best In Black Awards Gala

We are fortunate that our city is excelling with Black enterprise and excellence in general. The Best in Black Gala is a black-tie formal event that recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of the Black/African-American community in Clarksville while also raising money for an accessible community mental health program that focuses on trauma-informed care and training.

During the next few days, you will have an opportunity to vote for your favorites in over 50 categories through September 10th. On September 17th, we would love your attendance at our gala as we recognize, honor, and celebrate the winners.

Be prepared to party with a purpose! Walk the red carpet into cocktail hour, get your photos taken by your personal paparazzi, and enjoy live music with the musical stylings of DJ Brock. We will have hors d’oeuvres in addition to a seated dining experience, signature cocktails, dancing, and an amazing silent auction!

Let’s Party with a Purpose! Manifest Magic Black Girl Cooperative is a 501c3 non-profit organization. All proceeds will go to fund the community mental health program.
