January Rotary Club Make-Up Meeting

‘Last Friday at the Richmond Hill City Center’s first Festive Friday of the new year, Florida based VOICE Festival singer and American Traditions Competition contestant, Jessica Ann Best sung a wonderful range of Broadway hits and opera arias accompanied by talented pianist and Savannah resident Tim Hall.  The City Center provided drinks, free snacks and wonderful music as well as a return of the popular themed drink – the Diva Delight – a champagne and peach cocktail.  The Richmond Hill City Center donated  20% of proceeds raised to the Savannah VOICE Festival – a registered 501(c) 3 organization in the State of Georgia.  Jessica also performed earlier in the week at the Suites At Station Exchange for its senior residents”
