By March 4, 2015No Comments

The 100 Black Men of Omaha (100BMO) and  Honorary Chair, Kirk Kellner, Regional President for Wells Fargo, would like to invite you to the 10th Annual Men of Honor Gala in celebration of the organization’s 20th year of service,  Saturday, April 18, 2015, 6:00 p.m., at Hilton Omaha, 1001 Cass Street.

The Men of Honor Gala has provided an ideal platform for inspirational and highly respected leaders to deliver timely messages, while highlighting the work and achievements of the 100BMO.  Nebraska Head Coach, Michael “Mike” Riley, will serve as this year’s keynote speaker.

The Gala serves to recognize individuals who, through their service, demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the mission of the 100BMO and raises needed funds to support 100BMO programs that support at- risk Omaha youth. This year’s honorees are:  Rev. Dr. Selwyn Q. Bachus, Senior Pastor Salem Baptist Church, Eric L. Butler, Executive Vice President Union Pacific and Johnny Rodgers, University of Nebraska’s “Player of the Century” and the winner of the 1972 Heisman Trophy.

Each year, the 100BMO’s Men of Honor Gala generates support dollars for mentoring and education programs serving at-risk youth.  It is our hope that you will become a Friend of the 100BMO by supporting this 20th Anniversary Celebration.
