Dining with the Divas: Thursday, February 9, 2017
On Thursday, February 9, 2017, the Apollo Theater held its seventh annual Dining with the Divas, a luncheon celebrating the accomplishments of extraordinary women. Despite the snowstorm, this year’s event was our most successful to date, raising record-breaking funds for the Apollo Theater’s performing arts, education and community initiatives.
As in customary for Divas, guests enjoyed an afternoon of networking and fellowship with some of the country’s most influential and dynamic women. The program featured a performance by rising star and Apollo veteran Briana Thomas and guest speakers included Lindsay Bernardez, former Apollo Theater Academy Intern, Patricia David, Senior Diversity Advisor for JPMorgan Chase, Tiffany Dufu, author and motivational speaker, and Pamela Newkirk, author and NYU professor – all of whom shared their unique legacies and impact in their the respective fields.
