The Social Proof Alumni Event: The Pinnacle of Black Excellence
David Shands Presents, "The Brown Billionaire Ball"
On October 27, 2022, we filled the Southern Exchange Ballroom with the epitome of Black Excellence.
David Shands hosted the second annual Social Proof Alumni Event, highlighting and celebrating entrepreneurs who have shared their excellence with the Social Proof audience. It was truly an evening to remember.
Attendees, adorned in gradients of brown to illustrate the richness of our heritage, dined and danced as a unified collective, celebrating their successes.
The Alumni Event, emceed by the incomparable Kenny Burns, was a dual purpose event.
Based on the suggestion and coordination of Nehemiah "Neo" Davis, the event was also a fundraiser for David's philanthropic organization, The Entrepreneurship Foundation, LLC. The purpose of the organization is to promote and mentor youth on the importance of entrepreneurship.
Nehemiah, on David's behalf, did a humble ask for donations and the attendees showed out! Collectively they donated a whopping 600K used soley to support this worthy cause.
The generosity of the esteemed attendees humbled David & The Social Proof family.
David also filled the evening with entertainment as Q Parker & Friends (Richard Wingo, J. Holliday, Case, Tamika Scott and more) serenaded the audience with classic old school R&B hits.
The energy and love in the room were palatable, and everyone is in high anticipation of next year's event.
Thank you, David, for highlighting our excellence!
