- This event has passed.
The South City Foundation invites you to join us in paying tribute to former Congressman Al Lawson, whose decades of work on behalf of our community has benefited – and will continue to benefit – citizens across North Florida. On Tuesday, April 25, 5:30 — 7:30 pm at The Moon our former Congressman will receive the Foundation’s inaugural Community Champion Award.
Lawson successfully secured millions of dollars to address our district’s most pressing needs, including South City’s work to create a world-class Early Childhood Learning Center, which is supported by local university education departments and the Leon County School Board.
This center will not only serve children 0 – 5 years old living in Southside Tallahassee, it will provide comprehensive wrap-around services for area families, with a focus on breaking the cycle of poverty, and it will provide professional development and training opportunities for all early learning providers in our area. Did you know that children in the Southside community are currently 2.5 times more likely to enter kindergarten without the skills necessary to be successful in school?
Please thank Al Lawson for his longtime commitment to our community by contributing to the South City Foundation.Visit our Eventbrite page to purchase tickets or sponsorships!
