Step back for 'Stompin' at the Savoy'
10/18/2013, 6 a.m.
Dust off your throwback finery and get ready for the ninth annual “Stompin’ at the Savoy” fall fundraiser on Nov. 9 at the Holiday Inn Perimeter/Dunwoody.
The nonprofit Howey Hudson Lowe Foundation is host for the 7-to-11 p.m. gala, which includes dinner, a dessert bar, dancing, and “big-band” music by Melvin Miller & MP3. There also will be dancing and singing acts, comedian Corey “Zooman” Miller, a vendors market, and souvenir photos.
More than 350 guests are expected, decked out in Roaring ’20s through the postwar ’50s ensembles.
The original Savoy, which operated from March 1926 to July 1958 in Harlem, was a mecca for music and dancing. It was called the “World’s Finest Ballroom.”
Proceeds benefit homeless families and children.
The hotel is at 4368 Chamblee Dunwoody Road. For more information and tickets, visit www
