First Annual Cannaball NYC

The Black Institute (T.B.I.) and its sister organization, The Black Institute Group (BIG), are pleased to announce our inaugural CANNABALL NYC to support the Social Equity and Racial Justice Project and honor Women in the cannabis industry.

We are thrilled to host you for an evening to raise money for The Social Justice and Equity project, whose mission is to train and educate communities of color impacted by Cannabis prohibition and the emerging legal New York State cannabis industry. Awards will be given to women industry leaders, trailblazers, and pioneers who have impacted the New York State cannabis movement.

The Black Institute Group will recognize Governor Kathy Hochul, Assembly Member Crystal Peoples-Stokes, and State Senator Liz Krueger for their contributions to legalizing cannabis in New York State. In addition, three awards will be given to three women of color to recognize their impact on the cannabis industry. The accolades include “Legacy,” honor to Evelyn Zapata, Entrepreneur and founder of The Cannabis Times, “Trailblazer,” award to Nicole N’Diaye, Founder of NAHE Hemp Farms LLC, OGAM LLC, and BOSSIEE BUDZ LLC, and “Industry,” to Miriam Aristy-Farer, Founder Herbas Bodycare.

The evening will feature complimentary beer and wine with a cash bar, a 3- course buffet dinner, live D.J., an award ceremony, dancing, and more!

Single and group tickets are available, so get yours today!
