On September 28, the Grand Center Inc. hosted its Annual Award Gala under The Big Top in Grand Center. Steve Smith, and the Lawrence Group, were recognized for their years of economic and philanthropic support for the Grand Center Arts District. Guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers while listening to the music of the Tonina Quartet, dinner music was by the Bob DeBoo Trio, and rounding out the night, guests danced to Anita Jackson.

Mr. Smith’s award was commissioned by co-chairs Kathie and Richard Winter, and designed by artist Tony Cray. Antionette Carroll and Jason Hall also served as co-chairs for the evening.
