The Newton and Rockdale County Democratic Parties will host the inaugural Jefferson-Jackson Dinner at 6 p.m. at the Georgia Piedmont Technical College on Saturday, Aug. 4.
State representative Stacey Abrams and Congressman John Lewis will speak at the event.
From 6 to 7 p.m., the silent auction will take place. Then, at 7 p.m., the dinner program will start.
Civic engagement, lifetime achievement and the community service awards will be given in the program, and Congressman Lewis will have a book signing of his book Across That Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change.
"This is a fundraising event. We are raising money for our Democratic candidates' elections in November," Sarah Todd, chairman of the Newton County Democratic Party said.
