The Manatee County NAACP is proud to hold its 1st Annual Heritage Ball on Saturday, June 28, 2014, at 7 pm, Palmetto Youth Center, 501 17th Street West, Palmetto, FL 34221.

Your support and attendance will ensure that our Awardees are recognized in the highest quality and ensuring an evening that is truly unforgettable. Come and join us and be a part of making history.
