Editor’s Note

Hello Readers,

Thank you for taking time to visit with us today!!! This whole venture officially began in 2001 on the urging of a friend who said, "you know where to go and where to be no matter what city you are. You bring a level of fun to every party you enter, why not use that unique influence and create your own events?" Guess what? 18 years later, A Gem Am I Special Events is still standing with a treasure trove of epic events and amazing adventures shared.

A Gem Am I helped to shape Charlotte’s social landscape for the African American middle class that you see today. We pride ourselves in your coming and walking away with an experience. We passionately believe in promoting small businesses and supporting positive organizations around the Charlotte community and beyond. What sets us apart from other tastemakers is our earnest desire to leave those we touch with something of value. We strive to genuinely connect with those we serve and offer a true sense of community.

We want to hear from you. Tell us what topics interested in. If you are in need of a boost in followers or clients, we can help with that too. Just say word and we will be there to Keep You “In The Know - Always!”
