I realize I am the one to criticize an event or gathering when it’s not first class nor advertised well. I’ve seen a plethora of events with heavy attendance from the Black community be first class and top tier.
These events include those by Diamond South Events, Dreamers Entertainment, Diner en Blanc and now the Bruh Mentor Sneaker Ball.
I personally needed the latter and not just because I missed last year’s event. It was the first large scale event I have attended since my injury. I was so happy to see people I knew and they felt the same way. This event definitely falls into the creme boulee category in that you must experience it. You had the 360 booth, 3 full bars, DJ, huge dance floor, free parking and food trucks. It checks many boxes for me as an event.
I have a few events annually that I must attend and now I add the Bruh Mentor SneakerBall Gala to this list. I may have found out late but now I know and want to continue to attend and contribute to the organization annually. SneakerBall Galas are becoming more of a thing now just like color and other such theme parties.
It’s definitely an added plus that people of color can come together and it doesn’t involve death nor drama. I will not speak highly of an event that isn’t top notch as I’ve attended many events throughout my life. It’s important to have these in your life not just for the social and networking purpose but also for your mental health. This is the best I’ve felt in a while and I want it to carry into March and the next event I attend.
