The First Annual Flourish Luncheon is presented by the Kennesaw State University College of the Arts to raise funds for scholarships and student-learning initiatives. More than 200 people are expected to attend the event, which has garnered more than $100,000.
During the luncheon, the college will present its annual Flourish Awards honoring people who have helped the arts flourish in Georgia. Launched in 2005, the awards are now presented in four categories: arts leader, arts educator, community/public service and arts organization.
