One night of celebrating excellence in the Black community and fundraising for nonprofits dedicated to elevating students of color.

GALA 2020

The Code Black Gala is a fun-filled night celebrating Black excellence, building community, and recognizing CBE’s Impact Nonprofits, trailblazers who are positively impacting the Black community. This unforgettable elegant black-tie experience provides the opportunity to network and party with an impressive crowd of Bay Area professionals, philanthropists, and style icons. Gathered together at the Hyatt Ballroom guests will listen to performances from top artists and attend an “Up Close and Personal” concert with our featured musical guest.

Each year the Code Black gala features local nonprofits that uplift communities of color, with a goal to inspire increased engagement across the myriad of organizations represented in CBE’s constituency. For this year’s gala, CBE is shining a spotlight on 4 local nonprofits dedicated to criminal justice reform. Each nonprofit will be featured at the Summit and Gala and donated funds from the proceeds CBE raises in sponsorship and donations.
