The Gala is the largest fundraising event presented by NBAF, and proceeds from this event fund our year-round programming—including film, visual arts, summer festival and performing arts, in addition to education and public programming events. The 2012 Gala will celebrate A Ruby Evening with tributes to the legendary actress Ruby Dee. Guests will enjoy a gala cocktail reception before the main event, featuring film clips from Ruby Dee’s career and other special effects.Although the Legendary Ruby Dee was under the weather and unable to attend. Her grand-daughter Ihsaana Muhammad was there to accept a couple of gifts on her behalf…including a Ruby Dee handmade Doll and a special hand made quilt that will be shipped to Ms Ruby Dee in NYC.
