Guests were treated to a delicious lunch that included yummy appetizers, such as rice cracker crusted tuna, bacon wrapped kobe beef, and manchego fig jam crostini.

A few of our favorites were in the building including Nastasha Bryson, Helena Andrews, Jummy Olabanji, Jas Richardson, Maimah Karmo, Lauren Wesley Wilson, Paul Wharton and Yodit Gebreyes.

The movie, which aired earlier this year, turned series left us wanting more and we’ll certainly be tuned in on January 7 and you should too!
