The 2020 Trustees Gala is the Georgia Historical Society’s premier annual event and the culmination of the 2019-2020 Georgia History Festival. The Trustees Gala reigns as one of Georgia’s most successful non-political black-tie events, bringing together business, philanthropic, and community leaders from across the state and nation as Governor Brian Kemp and the Georgia Historical Society induct the 2020 Georgia Trustees: Robert L. Brown, Jr., President and CEO of R.L. Brown & Associates, Inc., renowned architect and civic leader; and Robert S. Jepson, Jr., Founder and CEO of Jepson Associates, Inc., philanthropist and visionary entrepreneur.
From Georgia with love: presenting, for your eyes only, an elite gathering of special agents honoring two of Georgia’s greatest assets—the 2020 Georgia Trustees. In this ever-changing world in which we live in, you used to say you would never miss a Gala like this—you know you did, you know you did, you know you did. Join us as we dance into the fire and chase the morning light at “Nobody Does It Better,” an evening of dinner, dancing, and lively conversation with the inductees.
Please call 912.651.2125, ext. 156 to reserve your seats.
