2020 Eagle Awards Red Carpet Recap

The African American Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida and Walt Disney World Resort proudly presented the 2020 Eagle Awards on January 18, 2020. The event recognized individuals, small businesses, and corporations that have made a positive impact on the Central Florida community.

The Red Carpet set the scene for the entire event with live interviews from Florida National News, photographers, and instagrammers bustling about. The theme was "Soar Into Africa" and attendees rose to the occasion to reflect bold patterns, bright colors, and ensembles fit for royalty. After just 5 minutes on the red carpet it became clear which fashion trends were most popular.

2020 Eagle Awards Recap

The Eagle Awards are the AACCCF’s crowning celebration for Central Florida’s most dynamic growing businesses and entrepreneurs. The evening also serves as a time to recognize and honor the large corporations positively impacting our community and driving the growth and development of our vibrant and diverse business landscape. This year the event took place on January 18, 2020 at 7:00PM.

It was as if Wakanda had come to life, we had stumbled onto the set of the Lion King, or we had somehow been transported to the majestic Serengeti plains. While the actual event location was Disney's Contemporary Resort; this year's 2020 Eagle Awards took to the theme "Soar Into Africa" and transported attendees to another world.
