NEW YORK — For the Black Retail Action Group, its recent gala scored a double victory.
The organization raised its profile by recognizing three industry success stories, and a record amount for student scholarships. Macy’s chairman, president and chief executive officer Terry J. Lundgren, as well as Iman and Alain LaFontant, vice president of business development at Sean John, were the honorees at the black-tie gala at the Marriott Marquis. The 600 guests generated $1 million, which was almost twice the amount raised at the 2012 event. Also, 67 scholarships were distributed, compared with 30 last year.
