Created in 2002, the Black History Month Brunch is one of Genesee County’s premiere events. It provides an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the contributions of those who work to make the world a better place. The Brunch also inspires residents to reach their full potential and to make a difference in our community, state and nation. A portion of the proceeds from the event helps support the GDL’s Summer Reading Challenge, which reaches thousands of children and adults in Genesee County.

More details coming soon.
