A celebration in honor of the AAME Arts Achievement Awards winners is held Saturday, May 20 at 6 p.m., at the Holiday Inn in Bristol, Virginia.
This year's Gala honors Nancy Arnold, Schéry Collins, Marcia and Marvin Gilliam, Beth McCoy and Benjamin Walls. The winners were chosen from a diverse and talented group of individuals from across the region. Each of the winners has made a significant contribution to the arts in our community, not just as artists, but also as inspirations and mentors to other artists.
AAME is proud to honor their achievements and hope that you will join us in our celebration. The event supports the growing services the Alliance offers the community, such as its Arts Achievement Awards, A! Magazine for the Arts and the AAME Speaker Series. The evening begins with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m., with dinner following at 7 p.m. Musicians entertain. New this year is a silent art auction.
Tickets are $100 per person. Table sponsorships are $600 and include eight tickets to the Gala. Tickets may be purchased by sending a check, payable to AAME, to P. O. Box 94, Bristol, TN 37621, online at www.aame.info/gala. For more information, call 423-652-7462.
