For over five decades, the National Urban League (NUL) has presented the EOD Award – its highest commendation – to stellar corporations, individuals and organizations that have championed the principles of equal opportunity, civil rights and social justice. Proceeds from the dinner enable NUL to serve over 2.8 million people annually through its network of 98 affiliates nationwide.
Serving as this year's Dinner Chair is ING U.S. represented by Rhonda Mims, President of the ING Foundation. The evening will commence with the Chairman’s Reception at 6:00 pm followed by the Awards Dinner at 7:30 pm. This premier black tie event is sure to be a memorable one – especially as we will have spectacular entertainment from Harlem School of the Arts and the renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem!
We are also delighted to honor Five-time Tony Award-Winning Singer and Actress Audra McDonald with this year’s EOD Arts Award.
