Description

In celebration of its landmark 150th Anniversary, Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary is hosting a Black-tie Gala and Fundraiser, Saturday, November 11, 2017, 7:00-11:00 p.m., at the Buckhead Club of Atlanta, 3344 Peachtree Street NE, Suite 2600, Atlanta, GA 30326. This gala is the culmination of a series of events designed to build awareness and support for the seminary's new vision and mission.

Hors d'ouvres will begin at 6:30 p.m. with full cash bar. The dinner menu includes baby field greens salad with creamy herb vinaigrette; roasted airline breast of chicken filled with herb cheese, sundried tomatoes, and mushrooms; and St. Germaine creme brulee.

Music for the gala will be provided by the multi-talented Atlantan Tony Hightower. As a record producer, Tony has worked with Outkast, Goody Mob and Lionel Ritchie. As a singer, he is the voice of many commercials including ones for Coca Cola, Kroger and the Georgia Lottery. As an actor, Tony has toured with five of Tyler Perry’s plays. As a singer, Tony prefers jazz and is building a reputation for himself by "making music like Nat King Cole." Tony's interactive style, and that of his trio, lends itself to audience participation and dancing. This is a guaranteed good time!

Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary is the only historically African-American theological institution among the 12 seminaries of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The seminary provides customizable, competency-based theological education to advance communities of faith, justice, and compassion across the lines of race, class, ethnicity, and gender.
