Atlanta’s The Emerging 100 Donates $100K In Scholarships, Hosting Holiday Benefit

There’s some positive news coming out of Atlanta via an organization dedicated to uplifting the youth. The Emerging 100 of Atlanta, the award-winning young professional auxiliary of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc., has given out over $100K in scholarships within the last two years. The organization has a mission to enhance the mentoring and tutoring programs of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. and serve as role models to the entire community. In particular, they mentor students of Atlanta’s B.E.S.T. Academy and we previously covered their annual back to school welcome for students.
During that time, the pupils are flooded by suit-wearing black men who greet them with positive affirmations and high-fives to kick off the school year. Currently helmed by President Mitch Robinson, the group has awarded $250K in scholarships over the past five years to graduating seniors from the Atlanta Public Schools System.

They are now prepping for their 9th annual holiday soirée & benefit taking place on December 12th at Atlanta’s The Stave Room at American Spirit Works. The venue, which features a covered courtyard and rustic interior ballroom, will be fashioned into a premier, winter wonderland.

Moreover, the signature fundraiser will feature some of ATL’s finest young professionals decked out in gowns, tuxes, cocktail dresses and furs. Over the years, it’s become one of the city’s must-attend events and over 800 tickets have been sold thus far.
Last year’s attendees ranged from doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and the like to reality stars and music artists such as Waka Flocka.
