Funds raised from the event will go towards the new Harvey Legacy Endowed Scholarship and the Harvey Legacy Current-Use Scholarship.

The event – open to the public – will follow Hampton University’s COVID-19 guidelines, which include proof of full vaccination, temperature checks, and that masks must be worn at all times except during meals.

The gala is a black-tie event, with a gourmet dinner, dancing, networking, and a live musical performance. Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier will serve as the master of ceremony and the event will feature a live musical performance from multi-Grammy Award Winner Babyface.
