‘…as we make our city – the District of Columbia – the greatest city in the world!’ – DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center filled with 11,000 loyal supporters for the DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray Inaugural Gala. Hosted by Darian ‘Big Tigger’ Morgan of the Big Tigger Show and Jamie Foster Brown of S2S Magazine, the gala was a black-tie celebration complete with great food, drinks, dancing and entertainment. Grammy Award nominated R&B artist, Raheem Devaughn, and the legendary ‘Godfather of GoGo’, Chuck Brown kept the party alive, performing songs for every age. Mayor Gray took the stage to show appreciation and recognized many of his fellow officials including Chairman Kwame R. Brown, Councilmember At-Large Michael A. Brown, and former mayor and current Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry. Other notable guests included immediate and distant family members of Gray, all sponsors of the Gray campaign, lobbyists like Rhoda Washington, President of the GWFCC Christine Brooks-Cropper, DC Housewife Stacie Turner, the current Miss DC Stephanie Williams,  and more.
