Most of us are quick to purchase perishable items such as shoes, outfits and electronics… 2015 will be a year of making history and memories for me! For my weekend getaway treat I decided to make a small investment towards a golden ticket to the MLK Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner with President Bill Clinton!
“Our common humanity is better than our interesting difference. Stop raising our youth in shame but with pride, stop raising in hate but in LOVE “ – Bill Clinton
Although my “photographer hat” was still on… it was definitely a change in pace for me as I was able to sit down and enjoy the meal, remarks from Mayor Kasim Reed, Lisa Borders (Coca Cola), Dr. Bernice King and tribute to President Bill Clinton by Ambassador Andrew Young. The event was held on January 17th at Hyatt Regency Atlanta and featured journalists Jovita Moore and Wolf Blitzer as masters of ceremony.
Take a look a few highlights from this historical event:

NOTE: My Weekend GetAway Treat is just a little something I do for myself. Something big or small that puts an extra smile on my face and THEN… I share it with YOU!
Enjoy the pics!
