African American Heritage Society Black Tie Affair

February 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

AAHS Black Tie Affair

Join us for a night of elegance and purpose at our Annual Black Tie Affair fundraiser! This exclusive event is a celebration of community, culture, and commitment. All proceeds support the AAHS, the McLemore House Museum, and our newest preservation endeavor, the Merrill-Williams House. Expect an enchanting evening with a sellout crowd of around 750 distinguished guests. Secure your tickets early to ensure you don’t miss out on this remarkable gathering.

The festivities kick off with a captivating social hour, where you can mingle and enjoy a cash bar. At 7pm, the official program commences, when AAHS presents their annual awards across categories such as business, organization, civic engagement, communication, education, and religion. This is a moment to honor and recognize the outstanding contributions of individuals and organizations that have positively impacted the Williamson County community.

A special highlight of the evening is the recognition of a Pioneer family that was part of the Williamson County enslaved community as far back as 1850. This year, we are proud to honor the Sol House family, acknowledging their enduring legacy and contributions to our shared history.

As the night unfolds, guests will indulge in a delectable meal, setting the stage for an evening of enchantment. Live music and dancing will follow, ensuring that the celebration continues in a spirit of joy and unity.

Purchase your tickets promptly and join us for an unforgettable evening of philanthropy, recognition, and community building. Your presence contributes to the preservation of our rich heritage and the continued success of these vital community projects. Let’s come together in style for a cause that matters. Contact the Ticket & Table Host Chair, Quen Williams, at 615-400-6224 for availability of tickets.
