Honoring Hilary Ackermann

Join us to celebrate the profound impact that BRIC Board Chair Hilary Ackermann has had on the organization, as she steps down from her leadership role. The former Chief Risk Officer for Goldman Sachs Bank USA, she now serves on several corporate boards, including Credit Suisse Holdings USA. During her BRIC tenure, Hilary worked with the Board and senior leadership to significantly expand BRIC's programming, education initiatives, and community-engagement work, to realize the full potential of BRIC's multi-disciplinary arts and media center, BRIC House. Most recently as Board Chair, Hilary guided the national search for BRIC's President Kristina Newman-Scott, the first immigrant and woman of color to serve in this role.

Performance by Patti LaBelle
Beautiful simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. The soulful songbird's name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance, and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards, and spiritual sonnets has created the unique platform of versatility that she is known and revered for. We are thrilled that she will headline our Opening Night.

The Revel will be hosted by actress, comedian and author Franchesca Ramsey (Comedy Central, MTV) and her husband Patrick Kondas, who are known for their acclaimed podcast Last Name Basis, part of the BRIC RADIO network. In 2018, Franchesca published her first book, Well, That Escalated Quickly: Memoirs and Mistakes of an Accidental Activist.

Fashion designer Nanette Lepore, who recently moved her company to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, will be lending her creative vision to the evening as the official fashion partner.
