The Event

Please prepare yourself for an evening of elegance and fun while feeling rewarded for supporting such a worthy cause as helping young people going to college.

You will be greeted upon arrival at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead by guest hosts who are members of Alpha Phi Alpha’s Omicron Phi Lambda chapter. They will lead you to the elevator that will take you to the event level, where you will receive your table assignment and enjoy a reception complimented with live jazz from 7:00 to 7:45 p.m. in the prefunction area of the Heritage Ballroom.

From 7:45 to 8:00 p.m. will be our “Gold Carpet” event, where OPL’s founders, scholarship recipients and sponsors will take the majestic stroll, with you serving as the paparazzi. It’s our way of acknowledging in a special way our appreciation for these special people.

The doors of the ballroom will open at 8 p.m., taking the evening to another height. The beautiful Heritage Ballroom will enchant you, and the delicious dinner, soothing music, video presentations and inspirational words will reinforce the value of your support.

And then we party. . . until our feet hurt.
