It’s that time of year again!

Tony Award winning-director, Kenny Leon, will host his Annual Celebrity Golf & Gala this weekend Saturday, May 21 in Atlanta, GA. The one day for entertainment and golf raises funds for his True Color’s Theatre Company and it benefits the August Wilson Monologue Competition.

Golf-and-GalaThe day begins with a golf tournament at Bear’s Best Atlanta and features a showdown between Samuel L. Jackson representing “Team West Coast” and Kenny representing “Team East Coast.”  Both are competing for the coveted Kenny Cup.

Following the golf tournament is the star-studded Gala at Atlantic Station’s Millennium Gate Museum featuring a gourmet dinner buffet, cocktails, live entertainment, and fabulous live auction. Celebrities in attendance this year include Flex Alexander, “The Wiz Live” stars Shanice Williams and Elijah Kelley, RHOA Phaedra Parks, NBA legend Julius Dr J Erving, TV & film icon Richard Roundtree and more. Actress Terri J. Vaughn will serve as one of this year’s co-chairs.

I had a chance to attend and cover the event last year and had a blast. Debbie Allen, Jennifer Holliday, Tavis Smiley, Jasmine Guy, Leon, Dule Hill, were among the celebrities in attendance and it was fabulous!
