This year, we have reserved a suite at the FedEx Forum for all of us to enjoy a Memphis Grizzlies game!

Instead of the usual, we thought an entertaining outing would be more fun, with the focus not on the awards, but on each other. So, please make plans to join us as the Grizzlies take on the Denver Nuggets, Tuesday, January 27.

We’ve reserved one of the great suites at the Forum and will be serving food and beverages before and during the game. Plus, we’ll have our local winning NAMA entries on display.

The FedEx Forum is located at:
191 Beale Street
Memphis, TN 38103

RSVP for this event will be sent in January.
