The reception starts at 5:30pm. This is your chance to meet like-minded folks and enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a full bar featuring beverages from upstate New York. The buffet dinner by Karen's Catering begins at 6:00pm.

Following dinner, we will adjourn to the ballroom to have a panel discussion on the ongoing efforts to save the People’s AME Zion Church located at 711 E. Fayette Street, Syracuse. This is an opportunity to support the efforts to rehabilitate an important Sacred Site, continuing our organization's "Sacred Sites" theme for 2013.

The evening will conclude with a very special presentation of Rev. Jermain Wesley Loguen, set as a “Donation Party” at Syracuse’s Market Hall in June 1852. Loguen is welcomed back to Syracuse by his supporters after spending the previous winter and spring in Canada after the Jerry Rescue Incident in October 1851.

Portraying the Rev. Loguen will be Robert Djed Snead, a graduate of Monroe Community College and SUNY – Brockport. Djed is a published poet, playwright, author, storyteller and historical reenactor.

The Barnes Mansion was the home of Underground Railroad supporter George Barnes. Barnes put up $4,000 bail money ($110,000 in 2012 dollars) for two people who tried to help "Jerry" during the "Jerry Rescue."  More about the George & Rebecca Barnes Foundation

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
