This year is Booker T Washington's 100th Anniversary with a year long schedule of events which will include the Booker T. Washington Foundation for Excellence's annual fundraiser, Gospel, Grits & Gershwin. Participants of this morning gourmet brunch event will bid on live and silent auction items while feasting their ears on a variety of musical talent such as the school’s mainstay of Gospel, Grits and Gershwin – the Booker T. Washington Jazz Band and The Funky Ds – BTW’s high-stepping drum corps.
The BTW Foundation for Excellence was established in 1993 to enhance the learning opportunities BTW.
