The Red Dress Gala is Classy Living Society’s annual fundraising event, where over 300 or more of the brightest women of Atlanta (and beyond!) meet for an afternoon of generosity and philanthropy with one goal in mind; to benefit charities within the community that may otherwise go unnoticed.

The Gala also serves to honor and applaud the extraordinary work of organizations that we are passionate about, and introduces CLS as a premier women’s volunteer organization with a sincere and deep-rooted enthusiasm for philanthropic efforts.
Join us this year, as we celebrate Classy Living Society’s Fifth Anniversary and as we focus on the importance of sisterhood!  The Sisterhood Gala – will be held on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at the WESTIN ATLANTA PERIMETER NORTH.  It is being presented by Classy Living Society AND Legacy for Change, CLS’ own 501(c)3 organization which will benefit young girls, ages 9 to 14!  
With Legacy for Change,  it is our mission to extend a longer reach into the community – by endeavoring to inspire, mobilize and encourage young girls who are on a quest to help change the world!  We envision a world in which all girls and young women, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socio-economic background are empowered to reach her fullest potential and lead through service by giving back and helping others.  
Historically, the Red Dress Gala has championed numerous causes that affect women in the local communities that we serve. In 2018, we are broadening our efforts, and will focus on several women’s health issues and their often undiscussed effects, including, but not limited to:
  • Heart disease
  • Mental illness
  • Breast cancer and other cancers
  • Uterine fibroids and other female reproductive illnesses and issues


Gritz & Jelly Butter

Just one listen to the hottest, and most explosive Atlanta-based band, Gritz & Jelly Butter, and you too will become a believer in the “Gritz Revolution” … the musical revolution that is. The trio of musicians and vocalists were formed by what they refer to as the “natural mystic”, and is committed to sending a message of personal freedom through their unique style of music and creative expression.

Best consumed live, a standard serving of Gritz & Jelly Butter includes a mix of Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Classic Rock vibes, delivered with a distinct and unique flair that is undeniable. At any moment, a sultry, well-formed ballad, delivered with gentle precision by the soulful crooner, Jameel (“J”) Winston. Moments later, your mood is suddenly interrupted by a raw and captivating jam session joint! The rhythmic combination of Live Keyboard, Drums, and proper thumbpage pulsating on Bass will awaken your senses, and delight your ears. Performing the perfect blend of old and new songs, while mixing in several of Gritz & Jelly Butter’s original songs, paves the way for a new brand of soul/funk music.

Angelina Sherie

a multi-faceted talent whose message is one of love, faith and encouragement. It’s these core values together with her passion for music that make-up the fabric of who she is.

Whether she is touring the world with the country’s top corporate band “Simply Irresistible,” playing in concert venues all over the Southeast, or leading worship at churches, she uses her voice to tug at the hearts and move the soul. It’s no doubt that Angelina is a gifted and talented singer/songwriter, but what sets her apart and makes her intriguing is her gifting with the violin. Her mastery has led her to work with a bevy of artists such as Grammy-winner Chrisette Michele and can be seen playing alongside Gospel legend Kirk Franklin for BET’s nday’s Best d fossie Smollett and Estelle on BET’s UNCF Evening of Stars Award Show. As Angelina continues to perform on different stages and music festivals she uses every platform available to share her message and gift.

Comedian Lady Q

The Bible tells us to train a child in the way they shall go, and when they are old they will not depart from it. Well, the teachings LaQuitcha received were not in vain. After years of running from her true calling, she accepted the fact that God had both a purpose and a plan for her life that would glorify Him. Proverbs 17:22 tells us; “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”

Lady Q answered “the call” and emerged as a true performer after accepting an invitation to perform a “One Woman Show” in 2008. Lady Q changes the atmosphere, by displaying the humor she recognizes in all people and situations.

Since that time, Lady Q has been awarded the PrazyeFactor People’s Choice Awards in 2014 for Best Christian Comedian! Lady Q has opened for Comedians such as, Rodney Perry, Marcus D. Wiley, Small Fry, and has performed with Bruce Bruce. Lady Q travels far and abroad to many venues, including Jamaica and Bahamas to share her God-given talent to people of all ages, and backgrounds.
