Black Tie International:
First Annual "A Celebration of Service"
 

First Annual "A Celebration of Service"

 
What

The First Annual “A Celebration of Service” will engage the Greek Letter organizations termed as “The Divine Nine” in a showcase of the service they provide in communities around the country and the world. “A Celebration of Service” will culminate in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Mercedes Benz Stadium during the ESPN owned Celebration Bowl, beginning at 12 noon, and televised nationally on ABC. Rank and file members of each organization will be asked to converge on Atlanta as a show of togetherness in a spirit of celebrating service.

Why

The purpose of this initiative is to highlight the tremendous contributions, and impact the Divine Nine organizations are making. It will provide a platform to shape the narrative of what these organizations, through their members, do and their relevance to the African American community.

Service Counts

Anyone associated with the Divine Nine organizations knows that their principle existence is to provide services that improve communities. They are an essential part of the African American experience beginning in colleges and universities around the country and continuing throughout the lifetime of the members. The partnership with ESPN provides the media platform to show case their cause and shape the narrative of service verses one of Step Shows.

Who We Are

The platform will highlight key members of the Divine Nine organizations. By doing so, it will reflect the important leadership roles that each organization’s members have played throughout their existence. Content stories will be developed and featured on ESPN content platforms.

Road to “A Celebration of Service”

With service at it’s core, “A Celebration of Service” will kickoff in Atlanta, Georgia on September 1, 2018 with a joint service project coordinated by the Atlanta area Divine Nine chapters. ESPN will have a camera crew and additional digital content platforms on site to chronicle the work and showcase that footage during the national broadcast of the MEAC SWAC Challenge on an ESPN network September 2, 2018. During the game local chapters will bring youth they serve through their programs and wear their organization’s paraphilia as part of the showcase of their service work. They will be featured during the game and telecast. During the football season this process will be replicated up to four additional times in various cities during ESPN televised MEAC and SWAC games. The culmination of “A Celebration of Service” occurs during the Celebration Bowl December 15, 2018, televised on ABC. The focus will be the global impacts of each organization. National leaders of each Divine Nine organization will be at the center of the presentation and showcase.

One Goal

The significance, extent, and impact of the service provided by the Divine Nine organizations and their members will be the cornerstone of this annual initiative. The focus will be on changing the narrative and educating the country about the scope and work of the respective organizations through their members.

Final “A Celebration of Service” Initiative

In partnership with the Divine Nine organizations and the Celebration Bowl on December 15, 2018 fans that attend the game will be asked to bring canned goods for collection and donation to the Hosea Helps organization. Collection receptacles will be placed at strategic entry locations to Mercedes Benz Stadium for food drop off. See the link for information Hosea Helps. http://www.11alive.com/video/life/holidays/47th-annual-hosea-helps-christmas-dinner/85-2461627 It will also be recommended that during the actual Christmas feeding members of the local Divine Nine chapters participate wearing their organization paraphernalia. Local media will be engaged to cover the event.

Leadership

A committee comprised of representatives from each Divine Nine organization will work with the Executive Director of the Celebration Bowl and MEAC SWAC Challenge/ESPN. These individuals will serve as an extension of the Bowl and Challenge Advisory Board. These individuals will represent their organization in all planning and coordination of the “A Celebration of Service” activities.

Summary

“A Celebration of Service” is the first initiative of its kind to feature the service aspects of all the Divine Nine organizations on a national media platform. In doing so, the media value to each organization will provide invaluable resource to leverage in continuing each organization’s important work of service.
