Gala to honor leaders in the works

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Some leaders in our community are one step closer to being honored for all their work.

Wednesday, the King Tisdell Cottage Foundation held a luncheon to kick off their annual awards banquet.

The gala will recognize local citizens who make a distinct contribution to our community. Today, starts the fundraising portion for the gala itself.

"Our mission at the King Tisdell Cottage Foundation is to celebrate, educate, to research, and to share, as much as we can, about the experiences of African Americans in this region, in our culture and in our history," said Annette K. Brock of the King Tisdell Cottage Foundation.

The awards gala is September 24th. WTOC is a proud sponsor of the event.
