Metropolitan Club Announced 2019 Award Dinner

Since its founding in 1991, the Metropolitan Club shares 70 percent of its bottom line results with three nonprofit organizations: Life Learning Center, UpSpring, and Be Concerned.

That tradition continues on Tuesday, October 22, when the 2019 Metropolitan Award Dinner takes place at the club from 6 to 9 p.m.
