Description

The DeKalb County Branch is hosting its 62nd Annual Freedom Fund Awards Gala. The black-tie affair will take place Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Courtyard Atlanta Decatur Downtown/Emory, 130 Clairemont Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030. The celebration will be well attended by various community leaders and elected County officials. The President’s VIP Nominee and Sponsor’s Reception will begin at 5:30 PM.

The DeKalb Branch of the NAACP has been faithfully serving the community for 63 years with the mission of advocating for political, educational, social, and economic equality for all citizens, as well as eradicating racial injustice. NAACP DeKalb County Branch is honored to recognize the significant contributions of community leaders who represent our diverse DeKalb County population.

This year’s theme is “A New Era, Same Cause...Justice”. This year’s gala will honor eight (8) great leaders in our community who have made noteworthy achievements toward civil rights. In addition, the gala raises funds for the Branch to implement effective local and National NAACP civil rights programs with focus in the areas of education, civic engagement, economic sustainability, health, public safety, criminal justice and youth work.

The Freedom Fund Awards Gala will feature live performances, dancing and a special presentation to the 2018 John Evans Lifetime Achievement Award recipients. We will start seating guests at 7:00 PM followed by dinner service at 7:30 PM. The attire is black-tie.
