The first annual Black Tie Affair through REAP will be held on December 12 at the Jupiter Hotel in the Arium Ballroom.
“The Black Tie Affair sponsors young men of color, and families get to come out and get to know our program and what we do,” Said REAP Teacher, Daniell Shelton. “The event highlights programs and looks back on things in Portland, like male leaders. It is very formal, so men come in suits and ties.”
The Black Tie Affair hosts a catered formal dinner for young men of color and their families. There are limited seats available.
Students can register on the website www.reapusa.org , under “Events”.
