Beck&Call's First Fundraiser: Freedom Call Juneteenth Dinner

On Friday, June 18th, 2021 Beck&Call Hospitality had our first fundraiser dinner! This special event was a celebratory pre-launch to our #RedefiningHospitality crowdfunding campaign and a way to honor black entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry. Beck&Call Hospitality invited a select group of black entrepreneurs to help bring this event to life and to speak in the video you can watch above. 

The Event

The Freedom Call Dinner was held at Bisong Art Gallery, a fine art gallery located in Downtown Houston’s Warehouse District. This intimate art gallery is owned and operated by Carla Bisong, the only for-profit art gallery owned by a black woman. As of 2021 the gallery has celebrated seven years in operation and is open to rentals, workshops, art consultations, and more.

Tobi Smith, started his All I Do Is Cook out of his college apartment as a food blog, but after growing demand, he not only ships his Nigerian meals across the US but also started a catering company which is now known as TwoThirtyFourKitchen.
