Alpha Phi Alpha Greenville Foundation along with Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha will sponsor its 41st Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Luncheon on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at the Melvin and Dottie Younts Conference Center on the campus of Furman University.
The Gala features a full course dinner and live entertainment. Recent years have seen the Scholarship Gala positioned as a kickoff event for Martin Luther King activities in Greenville and surrounding areas.
Proceeds from the Scholarship Luncheon support the Luke H. Chatman Scholarship for local high students as well fund other Alpha Greenville Foundation efforts such the MLK Youth Program, Gordon College Fair, and Joseph Vaughn Oratorical Competition. See Alpha Phi Alpha Greenville Foundation website for more information, www.alphagreenville.org.
Last year, Mrs. Pearlie Harris, Community Health Activist, has been selected as the 2019 Martin Luther King, Jr. Citizenship Award winner which was presented at the 2019 Gala. In addition to presenting the winner of this year's award, the Gala is the longest held annual Commemorative event MLK Holiday for the Upstate and serves the culminating event for the Foundation's fundraising efforts.
