Brunch tickets are $35 and are available at the Headquarters Library beginning Monday, November 27th. A portion of the proceeds from this ticketed event helps fund GDL’s Summer Reading Challenge that reaches over 10,000 children and their families annually.

At the event, we will be celebrating the accomplishments and contributions of the following honorees:

Communities First, Inc. (Partner in Progress Award)
Pastor Jeffery Hawkins (Award of Excellence)
Mr. Charles "Chuckii" Montgomery, Jr. (Award of Excellence)
Mr. Sam Wells (Award of Excellence)

This year's entertainment will be Linkin' Bridge, a singing group from Louisville, Kentucky, that captured the nation's hearts on NBC's America's Got Talent. Best known for their warm harmonies and emotional performances, they are passionate to unite the world through music and love.

Linkin' Bridge is comprised of Montre Davis (a cook, crooner and soul-singer), Big Rome Kimbrough (vocal powerhouse and family man), Shon China Lacy (rhythmic, gritty tenor and restaurant manager) and Ekoe Alexanda (Renaissance man, musical arranger and versatile vocalist). They have each evolved on different paths, but have come together as one sound to inspire, through music and story, all those who are fortunate enough to encounter them.
