September. Sweet (Sounds).
The month of September means different things to different people. For some, it signifies one of the last holidays of the summer, Labor Day Weekend. For others, it's the ushering in of a new season (autumn/fall), let alone a prime time for sports ranging from the start of football, to the heating up of the pennant chases for Major League Baseball.
However, on September 10, 2017 from 4-7pm at the Millennium Gate Museum located at Atlantic Station, it's the second annual Sweets and Sounds. The outdoor-themed celebration of the arts is hosted by the Gwinnett County Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, as it serves as a way to place emphasis on the arts, along with raising funds to support some great community causes.
As their chapter president Annie Davis notes, "We are delighted to host this amazing event again this year. It is an outward creative expression of the arts and gives us the opportunity to raise monies in order to meet the greater needs of our community and award scholarships to deserving youth in Gwinnett County".
Spoken word performances, along with the headliner of Atlanta's own Brownchild Entertainment, are among the features of the afternoon affair. Patrons are also able to enhance their experience via exploration of the museum (a 12,000 square foot facility) which provides engagement opportunities of Georgia history through the use of interactive technology, films, and exhibitions.
Tickets for the event are $50 per person for general admission and $75 per person for VIP admission. As an added means of giving back to the community, attendees are asked to bring a book, music CD, or art supplies that students ages 3-16 are able to use. These items are earmarked for donation to the Partnership Against Domestic Violence and Sheltering Arms.
For additional details, including ticket purchases and sponsorship opportunities, readers are encouraged to visit the chapter's website (www.gwinnettdst.org) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Since the sorority's establishment on January 13, 1913, as well as the chapter's chartering on March 8, 2003, their motto of "Intelligence is the Torch of Wisdom" is ever-present in their service, leadership, and outreach. September 10, 2017 is another example of the programming the Gwinnett County Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is all about.
September sure sounds sweet.
