Brandon Hay, Founder and Executive director of the Black Daddies Club, will be awarded the African Canadian Achievement Award of Excellence (ACAA), one of the highest honours bestowed on African Canadians by their community.
The parenting award normally goes out to an elder parent; however, this year – for the first time – it will be awarded to an agency (Black Daddies Club). Brandon will be accepting the award on behalf of the BDC.
The 26th Anniversary Award ceremony will be taking place on Saturday, June 4, 2011from 7:30 p.m.to 11:00 p.m. at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in the Jane Mallet Theatre on 27 Front Street (map).
Tickets are $35.00 each; students pay $25.00. for more info on tickets please contact:Joan Pierre (President/Executive Producer- African Canadian Achievement Awards) at 905-201-2836 or 416-579-8377 (cell).
The ACAA, established in June of 1985 and produced annually by Pride News Magazine, recognizes and honours the accomplishments, achievements and excellence of African-Canadians in fourteen categories. It is also intended to offer sparkling testimonies of hope and inspiration to our youth — courageous examples of achievement and “overcoming” which they can emulate and perpetuate.
