Francis S. Guess Bridge to Equality Luncheon

Join us for the Francis S. Guess Bridge to Equality luncheon on Tuesday, May 24 at the Music City Center. The Francis S. Guess Bridge to Equality Award was created to honor the memory of a man who served our community with vigor, commitment, and pride for decades. He found his own bridge to equality and then created the same opportunities for others throughout the country and here at home. The award will be given annually to individuals who, like Francis, have helped others attain equality and have created opportunities for all.

This year's award recipient, Ben Rechter, has devoted his entire civic life to reaching out to help others attain equality and realize the American Dream. His heart and prodigious talent have always been devoted to creating opportunities for all.
