Our dear Holy City dwellers: It’s time to dust off the spring hats and step on out in style. On Sat. April 25 at 11:30 a.m., the YWCA of Greater Charleston and the New CSO Spiritual Ensemble will be presenting A Spiritual Brunch, a fundraising event to benefit both organizations’ operating funds.

The fundraiser is a sure way to honor both wonderful traditions of a Southern brunch and of Lowcountry spiritual music; all while supporting two great nonprofit organizations that are in need in the Charleston area.

Ladies and gents alike are asked to don their spring hats in honor of these traditions. The brunch is being held at the Marriot Charleston Riverview and includes a delicious, speciality menu prepared by the staff.

Tickets are $40 dollars and are available at the Gaillard Box Office on 77 Calhoun St. (cash only) and at the YWCA on 106 Coming St. (cash, checks, or credit cards accepted). Visit www.ywca-charleston.org or www.csogospel.com for more information. —Reina Gascon-Lopez
