In February of 2020, WDB Marketing has hosted their 4th annual LEGACY Gala awards. The L.E.G.A.CY. Awards Gala celebrates the impact Black entrepreneurs have on their communities. WDB Marketing has worked with over 3,000 Black owned businesses throughout the nation, witnessing firsthand the enormous impact Black businesses are having in their communities. From job creation, to leadership, to hope, small businesses are becoming integral to the growth in our community. The awards highlights key areas of importance in our communities – Leadership, Education, Growth, Advocacy, Community and Youth.

Every year, they also host a young entrepreneur of the year contest. The Young Entrepreneur Contest encourages young entrepreneurs under 25 years old and younger to present their businesses to all of the guests within the gala. Over $10,000 worth of prizes is given to the winner, including a trip to Africa! This year’s winner was Ava Dorsey, founder of Ava’s Pet Palace.
