Thank you for sharing such a splendid evening filled with beautiful art; enthralling performances by Brooklyn United Marching Band, The Knights, and Deva Mahal; an exciting live auction led by the delightful Lucy Sexton; crave-worthy food and cocktails; and an energizing After Party with a global soundtrack by DJ Maria Chavez.

With your generosity, we exceeded all fundraising goals for this event and had our most successful auction to date, providing vital support to continue BRIC's work as the leading presenter of free cultural programming in Brooklyn.

Special thanks go to our wonderful Gala Co-Chairs Julia Kahr and Michael K. Liburd, along with our dedicated Host Committee, who all worked tirelessly to plan this fabulous event. We also extend our deepest gratitude to all of the outstanding artists and local businesses who donated their work to our live and silent auctions
