DUNWOODY, Ga. -- The Metro Atlanta chapter of the Jackson State University National Alumni Association is gearing up for its 2011 Scholarship Jazz Brunch.

Tickets are $40 per person, $75 for a couple or $375 for a table of 10.

This year's brunch will feature the music of Blake Gaines' Jazz Ensemble, as well as a fashion extravaganza, cultural arts exhibits and a silent auction. Gaines, a renowned bassist, has worked as a band director at Morehouse College and numerous Metro Atlanta high schools.

The funds earned through the Scholarship Jazz Brunch will assist the local chapter in providing college dollars to deserving Georgia students who want to attend Jackson State, Mississippi's only urban university.
