3. Opportunity to interact with local artists 

How often do you get a chance to have a lavish dinner at an Art Gallery? Attendees will have the opportunity to witness local artists Wayne Bell and others as they create unique pieces in real time, each one reflecting the artist’s interpretation of the Juneteenth celebration. 

4. Support a fantastic local charity

All of the artwork will be auctioned off to benefit the evening’s charitable partner, Lucille’s 1913, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healthy and nutritious food to underprivileged neighborhoods, schools and elderly residents throughout the greater Houston area.

5. Great way to commemorate Juneteenth

Following the recent commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre’s 100th anniversary, Juneteenth — an annual holiday celebrating the day enslaved Africans in Texas learned they were free, two years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation — is more relevant than ever before.

Now, more than a century and a half after its inception,  this immersive five-course dinner experience will celebrate the history of Juneteenth, while amplifying the idea of food and freedom throughout the African diaspora.
