On May 2, 2015, we attended the RHO Iota Lambda Education Foundation fundraiser and auction in Richmond, VA in support of youth scholarships. This event was important for several reasons. One, it allows scholarships to be available for science and math in areas such as technology. It will allow students who are passionate about the opportunity to learn more in the advancement of technologies of science such as aviation, transportation, civic engineering and architecture. It matters.
The theme, “GoldenNight” was also the hashtag. It was the first scholarship fundraiser held by the fraternity at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Va. I could not imagine a better location for a event such as this to take place. A few feet away, a very beautiful staircase, backdrop and sculpture awaits. A very classic menu consisting of heavy hors d'oeuvres available throughout the evening. Greeters, servers. Guest arriving fashionably early or late.
The Master of Ceremony, NBC12’s Brent Solomon’s voice is recognizable from any microphone. An amazing auction that included Redskin’s quarterback, Robert Griffin, III’s jersey sold with the bid I believe starting at $60. It was a formal black tie affair. However, supporters be as it may were also semi-formal and excited just to participate and be a part of such a wonderful initiative.
One of the greatest, honorary philanthropy project opportunities we've attended in RVA in awhile. A room filled with ambition, style, motivation and grace as well as a propensity for causes such as these. A spectacular gala. And, it would not have been complete without the mellow, melodic and contemporary sounds of jazz from featured artists Keith Anderson and NAACP Award winner, Music Mogul inspiration and Entrepreneur; Founder of FLO Wine, Marcus Johnson at www.ThreeKeysmusic.
VMFA also has a jazz café. If you’ve never visited VMFA, here is there website for more information on exhibits and events. www.vmfa.com. It was definitely a “golden night” for Richmond, VA with RHO Iota Education Foundation.
Our visit at VMFA for a tour in 2012. EnJOY!
