About the Lead Like King Gala

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Urban Renewal Center (URC) will host the 4th Annual Lead Like King Gala on January 24th, 2020 at 6:30pm. The semi-formal dinner and gala will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk in First Hall at 820 Colonial Avenue, Norfolk, Virginia. Tickets are $55 per person.  

The 2020 Lead Like King Gala will commemorate the legacy of hard working slaves who, against their will, were brought to America for the first time in 1619. Yet, they withstood the test of time amid the harshness of slave brutality, often in inhumane conditions. At this celebration of Dr. King’s legacy, it is appropriate to connect the dots between King’s legacy and black ancestors who carved the heritage that fueled the fire that spawn King’s relentless protest for social justice.

 The gala will consist of a classy evening with a southern comfort dinner, live entertainment including Spirituals, Civil Rights songs, Soul Music, and an awards ceremony. 

Save The Date!

Our next Lead Like King Gala will be January 24th 2020.
