Change of Plans

The 21st Annual Black History Month Brunch is being transitioned to a televised program that will air on ABC12 on Thursday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m.

In the world of event planning, the Covid-19 virus has taught us all to pivot quickly.  And due to the recent surge of Covid cases, we have to do just that.  We have made the difficult decision to transition the 21st Annual Black History Month Brunch to a virtual event.  

We have partnered with ABC12 to produce a televised program that will be aired on Thursday, February 24 at 7:30 p.m.  The program will feature our four honorees:  Ms. April Cook-Hawkins, Ms. Danielle Green, Ms. Lisa Horne, and the Sarvis Park Neighborhood Association with Dr. Ladel Lewis.  The singing group Four Washington from Jackson, Mississippi will perform.

Please Note: Refund checks have been mailed for all ticket purchases.

We hope you tune in to ABC12 on Thursday, February 24. And we definitely hope to see you at the Brunch next year!
