Last night, Beverly Bond, the CEO and Founder of BLACK GIRLS ROCK! teamed with CHEVY to host the "CHEVY Shot Caller's Dinner" at Espace NYC. Find out more about the fab event inside and see pics of Tracee Ellis Ross, Estelle, and Luke James.....
R&B group SWV, Salt and singer Estelle were amongst the movers and shavers spotted at CHEVY's Shot Caller's Dinner in NYC last night. The event was a part of BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, which tapes tonight, and welcomed influential individuals who are making an impact on their communities.
During a touching moment, representatives from CHEVY (shown above) presented a $25,000 check to BGR and Beverly Bond was overcome with emotion. She shared an inspirational story about BGR saying that it began in 2006 as a t-shirt and everything it has become is a product of her thoughts and dreams. She also shared that Tracee (who's hosting BGR this year) was also the host of the first BGR.
And BET CEO Debra Lee posed with Grammy Award-winning music legend Dionne Warwick who'll receive the BGR Living Legend Award Saturday night.
