Global Concepts Charter High School in Buffalo to honor Actress Phylicia Rashad

Global Concepts Charter High School is excited to announce its first annual gala celebration to celebrate its Ruben Santiago-Hudson Fine Arts Center. The event will take place on Friday, May 8, 2015 beginning at 6p.m. at the WNED Studios in Downtown Buffalo, NY.

The RSH Fine Arts Center is a state-of-the-art training center that houses an art studio, black box theatre, and a film/media production computer lab. Global Concepts’ goal for the gala is two-fold: to showcase its students work in the areas of art, music, and theatre. Also, to raise funds to expand our community arts and the Artist-in-Residence programs.

Joining Global Concepts for this special evening will be awarding winning actress/director and recent BET Honors honoree Phylicia Rashad who will be receiving the LEGACY AWARD which will be given to her by none other than Mr. Ruben Santiago-Hudson.

The event will also feature a student art exhibit, a silent auction, performance by the Theatre Dept., dinner, performance by the Chorus and Jazz Ensemble and remarks by Mr. Santiago-Hudson and others.

Opening its doors in 2010, Global Concepts Charter School mission is to be a top-rated educational institution, helping ensure its students' academic progress meet and exceed the State's standards. Global High School wants to be known for their innovative curriculum that prepares students academically, as well as in character, for the world of their future. This special event is just one way of honoring that mission as well as the students and community whom are benefiting from it.

Tickets for this historic black tie event are $45.00 before March 30th and $50.00 afterwards. For more information about the Gala, program ads or tickets to the event contact Charles Clark 716.939.2554, ext. 8906 or
