32nd Annual Jazzy Holiday Luncheon
Friday, November 30, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Jazzy Holiday Luncheon is the Gantt Center’s major annual fundraiser. The luncheon is one of the longest running annual traditions in Charlotte and trumpets excellence in the arts, culture, history and community. The proceeds from the event benefit the Gantt Center Annual Fund which enables the Center to provide programming to present, preserve and celebrate the arts, history and culture of African-Americans and those of African descent.
The 2012 luncheon is being held at the Westin Charlotte Hotel. Registration will begin at 11:00 AM; lunch follows at 11:30 PM. We will share the year’s highlights and key accomplishments and will present 2012 Gantt Center Awards to three recipients who have made tremendous contributions to the Gantt Center and the broader Charlotte community. Join us in celebrating:
Jeanne M. Brayboy
Community Leader, Arts Patron and Retired Arts Educator
Quentin "Q" Talley
Award-winning Theatre Professional and Poet
We encourage you to join us for this important fundraiser and recognition event.
