On Friday, September 23rd, Bayou Place in Downtown Houston played host to the 100 Black Men of Metropolitan Houston‘s 2022 Knights in Shining Armor Black-Tie Gala. It was an evening to remember: Featuring a live performance by R&B singer Eric Benet, special attendees included Mayor Sylvester Turner, U.S. State Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, NBA Hall of Fame Legend Tracy McGrady, to name a few.
Members of the 100 Black Men and esteemed guests filled the event hall, taking time to celebrate members of the community who have a positive impact throughout the City of Houston.
Following the red carpet premier and gathering inside the venue, attendees were greeted and treated to fine dining and live music. So it goes without saying that as the evening went on, The Gala transformed into a vibrant celebration, as the honors and awards came to a close and the dance floor opened up for dancing.
