Legacy Magazine is holding its ninth annual Legacy Power Weekend honoring 50 black businessmen and women Friday and Saturday in Weston.
“This weekend is to celebrate the achievements of the most powerful and most successful black business leaders of 2013,” Legacy CEO and host Dexter Bridgeman said.
Honorees, who are featured in Legacy Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Black Business Leaders issue, must first be nominated. Bridgeman, whose bimonthly magazine also honors young business leaders and business women, wanted to honor a group of people he believes usually go unrecognized, and to inspire the younger generation.
“It gives kids an opportunity to see that you can be a very successful lawyer, doctor, whoever,” Bridgeman said.
The networking event begins 3 p.m. Friday with a cocktail reception at Bonaventure Resort and Spa, XXXXX. The “50 Most Powerful” gala beings runs from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday. There will also be a poolside party from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday evening. Tickets cost $125. For more information visit twitter.com/legacymagsfl.
