Spring’s signature event is back! Don’t miss your opportunity to dine with a southern notable, participate in silent and live auctions, and support the symphony you know and love. Seating is limited and many celebrities sell out fast!

The 2020 Celebrity Luncheon keynote speaker is living legend Andrew Young, former ambassador to the United Nations, former congressman, past mayor of Atlanta, and civil rights leader.

One of the most fun and engaging events on the social calendar, the luncheon will take place on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the Marietta Country Club. Ambassador Young will be joined by a diverse and entertaining group of talented local artists, authors, musicians and business leaders. Proceeds from the event will benefit the GSO’s musical performance, youth education and outreach programs.

Not only are guests certain to be inspired by Ambassador Young, as well as a few other surprises planned, they will select to be seated at a table with one of a carefully assembled collection of influential and creative people in the area to learn about their journey. A specially created three-course menu will be prepared by Gary Sanderson, Marietta Country Club executive chef, and his team.
