Lea Black developed the concept for The Blacks’ Annual Gala and The Consequences Charity 15 years ago, dedicating herself to working tirelessly to raise awareness, support and financial resources for children in need. Believing that education was a more suitable alternative than jail for at-risk youth headed in that direction, Lea set out to make a difference and became a “fundraising phenomena” vowing to keep kids out of jail, get them educated and keep them safe. She is revered for her ability to inspire and motivate people to help these kids, the organizations that support them and challenges all of her donors, staff and volunteers to make an impact in their community, beginning one child at a time. Lea believes that one action equals a consequence and that can change a life.
