How We Do It

Events

Nat King Cole Generation Hope hosts two major events each year and multiple smaller special events to raise funds for our mission to provide music education to children with the greatest need and fewest resources. Each event is unique but all have the same focus – showcasing music, musical artists and promoting awareness of our mission. These events would not be possible but for the support of our sponsors, donors, partners, guests, volunteers and staff.

The GENERATIONS Concert is held in the spring and showcases generations of musical talent. Students from our funded programs as well as local youth artists are given the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. The event also has hosted legendary performers such as Mary Wilson of The Supremes, nine-time GRAMMY® award winning singer Natalie Cole, GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Recipient Dennis Edwards and The Temptations Review; and ten-time GRAMMY® Award-winning American musician and singer-songwriter George Benson.

Concert guests are treated to a pre-reception which include refreshments, silent auction, prize drawings and music from our funded programs; a full length concert with A-list artists; and for VIP’s and Sponsors an after party and meet and greet that “rocks the house”.

Plans are currently underway for 2018.
