Annual Gala

Thank you to all attendees and partners for supporting our mission

“A Night To Remember – Elevating & Celebrating Baltimore’s Black Workers” was hosted by Associated Black Charities at Sagamore Spirit Distillery on Friday, June 10th, 2022. Click below to relive our amazing evening on the Baltimore waterfront!


Thank you for sharing this time of reflection, regrouping, and celebration with us.

ABC’s annual gala remains a moment in the year when we are blessed to uplift the body of work we carry and renew the purpose that each partner, donor, and staff member of ABC carries within them each day.

We will continue to stand. We invite you to do so with us.
