For the first annual Boston Most Elite Awards held on 5/19/2012,  Russell Auditorium in Dorchester, MA was transformed into an elegant venue with rows of Red & Gold satin draped chairs to create a suitable atmosphere for the award show.  A backdrop for photos on the Red Carpet and a Red & Gold themed decor throughout the auditorium further complemented the award show ambiance.  Attendees certainly heeded the advice of the Boston MEA to dress to impress in stylish attire.

Co-hosts for the evening were Rushy Boo (one of the coordinators of the event) and Steve Timers who filled in for DJ Goldfinger who could not be in attendance.  The award show featured over 30 categories of awards.  As with most award shows,  award distributions and performances alternated throughout the evening.  KingMidas with Ghetto Hype and Ban International with Dj Preszy kept the music flowing all night.  What is most unique about this award show is that the categories highlight the urban businesses and community members that support the events instead of focusing solely on music award categories.   The award recipients showed their appreciation to the Boston MEA and recognized the efforts to get the first annual Boston MEA off the ground.  This new annual award show is off to a good start and will need the continued support of the community to build this into an even bigger and better event for years to come. Toward this end, the event coordinators Rushy Boo and Fluffy have already communicated their commitment for the 2nd Annual Boston Most Elite Awards which will take place on Saturday, May 18th, 2013  at a venue TBD.  They have also announced that the Boston MEA is now registered as a non-profit organization and they will be taking applications for a diverse group of committee members.  Interested parties should make contact via  their Boston Most Elite Awards Facebook Page.
