National Urban League Conference
The National Urban League Programs
For organizations that make a difference, a well-deserved surprise never hurts. The National Urban League works hard in the development of programs, public policy research and overall advocacy across the country. They continually leave a mark on the world and with our help, they pulled off the surprise of a lifetime.
The Whitney M. Young Gala consists of an evening of awards, including the President’s Award and the Living Legend Award. Our national entertainment specialists worked alongside conference co-chairs to plan a finale fitting the League’s mission and appealing to those in attendance. Ultimately, our team settled on national stars, Jamie Foxx and Vanessa Williams.
Building The Production
Foxx and Williams were natural fits for the event — both are incredible performers who are also active in promoting people of color within the entertainment industry. Our team kept their performance secret until the moment they stepped on stage, coordinating their movements throughout America’s Center and building the production in advance.
Our team pulled off a finale for the books, surprising all attendees with A-list entertainers and fantastic production to match.
Our team produced an incredible 50th Birthday celebration at Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, AZ. Featuring David Spade and Rebelution, guests were provided an unforgettable night of entertainment. The combination of comedy and music is a favorite of ours as it sets the fun tone of the evening, followed with the spectacle of a live music performance.
