The UNCF 26th Annual Mayor’s Masked Ball was held at the Atlanta-Marriott-Marquis last night. There was a Holiday Silent Auction and Pre-Ball Reception first that was fun. My girlfriend Dr. Zelda Pittman invited me to attend this Pinktabulous event. You guys it was the most prettiest party I’ve ever been to and I would like to applaud the event planner who put together this ball! The details were very well thought out and I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful table scapes,and atmosphere,stunning and absolutely gorgeous! Did I also tell yah the tickets were $500 smackaroos,well dang! Thank goodness I know folks, tee hee!

We then had an elegant dinner in which we had lobster tails and filet mignon,key lime pie and red velvet cake. I was in heaven,yum! We then saw The Parade of Masks which was very fun to watch, the masks were very extravagant!
I loved my pink mask designed by the Wilbourn Sisters they also modeled their masks and clothing at the party!

Later on people started dancing and mingling and then En Vogue performed! They did a great job singing some of their old hits! One of the girls couldn’t make it because she got snowed in, she lives in Virginia. The Masquerade Ball raised over 28,000 for the United Negro College Fund at this event.Wow great job and God Bless those who donated for the cause,its so important!
At the Ball they had alot of great items for auction, like a signed guitar from Jay Z, paintings,jewels and more. Shout out to Zelda for inviting me. I had a great time going to the Mayor’s Ball and cant wait to go again next year! You know we have a new mayor now, Kasim Reed I wonder how he will do this event next year,hmm?
