February 13: The Georgia History Festival’s Trustees “Dare to Dream” Gala is the Georgia Historical Society’s premiere annual event and the culmination of the Georgia History Festival. Inspired by the iconic Georgia businesses that helped to shape the modern world, with a nostalgic nod to the Mad Men era, “Dare to Dream” will be a sophisticated and stylish tribute to a time when martinis and bossa nova were de rigueur. Each year, this elegant and much-anticipated evening draws top local, state and national leaders to honor and pay tribute to the best the State of Georgia has produced. The 2016 Trustees Gala will feature Governor Nathan Deal’s induction of Muhtar Kent, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Coca-Cola Company and James H. “Jimmy” Blanchard, Retired Chairman of the Board and CEO of Synovus as the newest Georgia Trustees. 7-11:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency.
