Signature Events


On October 13, more than 200 guests joined us in shining a light on the people and organizations that are creating positive change in Baltimore at the Reginald F Lewis Museum. We gathered to hear from some of the people who devote their energy, time, and talent to making Baltimore thrive.

Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed light bites, wine, and beer, while mingling and sharing their hopes for a better future for Baltimore. Speakers included Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, Marco Avila, Erin Moran, Jacob Hodes, Rachel D. Graham and Julie Kernan. Dr. Shanaysha Sauls, CEO of the Baltimore Community Foundation, facilitated our incredible panel of GameChangers including Sean Closkey, Dr. Meleny Thomas and Kate Joyce. Left feeling inspired from the incredible speakers, we invited guests to network with coffee and dessert before ending the evening.

Baltimore GameChangers’ mission is to shine a light on the people and organizations that are creating positive change in Baltimore. In doing so, we intend to change the perception of Baltimore and inspire others to act in ways that benefit our community.
