Reginald Van Lee - Man on the Move

OK...I am scared of Reginald Van Lee!

He's been on the come-up quietly for some time now and seems to be stepping more into the spotlight as a premiere fundraiser.

For those who don't know, Reginald is a Senior VP at Booz Allen Hamilton. He hosted a spectacular fundraiser for Evidence Dance Company at his penthouse in New York City earlier this month. He is Board Chair for Evidence, holds two degrees from MIT, and was listed as one of the 25 consultants in the world by Consulting Magazine in 2000. Reginald was recognized as one of "New York's Finest Philanthropists" in 2002 and has been scoring major honors every year since then including the Black Engineer of the Year Pioneer Award in 2006. Reginald also headed up the Harlem Small Business Initiative with the Bill Clinton Foundation.

Guests at his recent soiree sipped champagne and nibbed on butter cream cupcakes (what a great idea!) while engaged in good times I'm sure. According to sources, the place was loaded with fab Sista Socialites like Sherry Bronfman, Audrey Bernard, and Alicia Bythewood. You gotta love those New York dolls because no one does it like them in terms of style and elegance.

The main fundraiser for this dance company will take place on August 25th in the Hamptons. I'm sure it will be an outstanding affair. Don't even think about trying to weasel in for less than $500 per person.

Cheers to Reginald and all those who made this event a success!
