Kennard Alumni Association invites you to our 2023 Kennard Gala

We hope you will join us in honoring Board Members “Past and Present”—Mr. John Wright, Ms. Cecelia Shorter, and Mr. Melvin Shorter—and support the programs and scholarships of the Kennard African American Cultural Heritage Center by purchasing tickets to our 2023 Gala Luncheon and Raffle! Take a chance to win one —or more— of three 1-night getaways with dinner from Best Western, Holiday Inn, Fisherman’s Inn, The Narrows, and Adam’s Grille.

Raffle tickets are $25 per ticket or $100 for five tickets.

Luncheon tickets can be added to your purchase for $25 per attendee. We are grateful to be able to gather in-person, once again, and hope to see you there.

We’ll kick off our Luncheon on Saturday, November 11th at 11:30 am at the Kennard African American Cultural Center.

The drawing will take place live on Zoom during the event at 1:30 pm.

Even if you cannot join us for lunch, we hope you will support our efforts by purchasing tickets or sponsorship.
