Michael Brown to chair Catholic gala

Posted By on Thu, Oct 10, 2013 at 2:07 PM

Former City Manager Michael Brown will be Honorary Chairman of the 13th Annual Cathedral Heritage Gala, held on Saturday evening November 23.

The Gala raises funds for the preservation and restoration of the 135-year-old Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Lafayette Square.

The Telfair’s Jepson Center for the Arts is the venue for the event, which features a cocktail party with =hors d’oeuvres.

At the request of Bishop J. Kevin Boland, Brown chaired a planning committee for parishes and schools in the Savannah Deanery. While a member of St. James Parish in Savannah, Michael worked on and chaired the Christian Services Committee addressing homelessness. Michael's wife Linda Lee taught at St. James School for 20 years (kindergarten and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades).

Michael and Linda Lee are members of the Cathedral Parish, and they travel extensively throughout the cities and towns in the Diocese of Savannah (and the Archdiocese of Atlanta) providing consulting services to municipal governments.
