City To Host Human Relations Banquet On Friday

The City of Goldsboro will once again join with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee and the Commission on Community Relations and Development to host the Human Relations Banquet on Friday, March 22, 2019 at 6:30 pm. The event will be held at the Goldsboro Event Center located at 1501 S. Slocumb Street, Goldsboro, NC and tickets cost $10.00.

The Human Relations Banquet is designed to recognize any individual, youth, or organization/business that has gone “above and beyond” in promoting good human relations in the City of Goldsboro and Wayne County. This is a symbiotic occasion to promote positive relationships within our community on such matters of race, cultural differences and tolerance of others.

A special part of the Human Relations Banquet is the presentation of trophies to 13 students from various public schools in Wayne County for their posters or essays submitted for the 2019 Human Relations’ Poster and Essay Contest. Over 100 students submitted posters or essays to artistically speak to the values of unity in diversity ─ the importance of understanding and embracing cultural differences to serve humanity. It is truly important to celebrate our youth and their diversity that makes us, the City of Goldsboro and Wayne County, “Better Together.”

To purchase tickets or for more information, please contact the Community Relations Department at (919) 580-4359, (919) 580-4360, or email [email protected].
