Looking for something to do this weekend? The Norcross Business Association is sponsoring the Art, Wine & Jazz event this Saturday to benefit the Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership.
"We just thought it would be a fun, one-of-a-kind event and a something great to do for the community," said Ranae Heaven, co-founder of NCSP. "In turn, we can fund some of the projects for the [school] cluster."
A live band will be playing, with Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson on the drums. What many may not have known about the mayor is that has had a long musical career: He started playing the drums at the age of 11 and has been a band director at Georgia Tech and on the high school level.
"I have a quartet that I play with occasionally, and we really only do events like this," said Johnson, referring to fundraisers. Two other members of the usual quartet will performing jazz standards with the mayor, in addition to a local citizen on the piano.
The event starts 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at DE Fine Art, located at 5933 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Peachtree Corners. Tickets are $20 and will be available at the door. For more information, call 770-662-0312.
The NCSP's mission is to encourage the achievements, enrich the experiences and enhance the opportunities of students in the Norcross cluster, according to its website.
