Since our founding of My Brother’s Keeper of Greater Richmond in 2009 and the establishment of its “33 the Series” and "Fatherhood" workshops.  We’ve encountered any number of men whose lives have inspired us with their amazing stories of faith, perserverance and drive to overcome the challenges of life.  These are men have often traveled an arduous path, filled with economic hardship, relationship dilemmas, lack of education, and spiritual obstacles. They have stepped out on faith to begin a journey toward being the men that God intended them to be.

We will be honoring men of Greater Richmond at our 3rd awards dinner aka “The Manny Awards Dinner.  The “Manny Awards Dinner” is a biannual event sponsored by MBKGRVA and partners. It is created to celebrate the unsung male heroes in the Greater Richmond area. These are men who have often traveled an arduous path, filled with trials and tribulations, in which God has helped them overcome. They are not the men who are usually celebrated or praised. They are men, brothers, husbands, fathers, uncles and sons, who have intentionally worked hard to become men relationally, educationally, financially, and spiritually to improve their lives and the lives of others. You are invited to a night of elegance, honor, recognition and family!

Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 5pm to 8 pm at the
