We would love to have the pleasure of your company at a unique gala evening of fine food, fine music - and fine company! The Granville Business Alliance is proud to host the first annual Evening of Brilliance on Friday evening, November 3, 2017 at the historic Granville Inn.  Our vision for this evening is to offer an opportunity to pause and enjoy a wonderful four course formal dinner along with first class musical entertainment in a delightful setting.  Make a plan to join know you deserve it!

The evening's featured musical artists include local favorites Peter Larson, Dr. Andy Carlson, Tom Carroll, Doug Richeson, and Seth Rogers.  A live and silent auction will also be featured with the proceeds helping to fund scholarships for two highly deserving students - one from Denison University and a second from Granville High School.  The scholarships will be administered and selected through the Licking County Foundation who will identify the two students who best exemplify an entrepreneurial spirit with a love for the Granville community.  Tickets for this inaugural event are $ 75.00 per person or $ 550.00 for a discounted table for eight and they are available on line at

The Granville Business Alliance is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that was organized to identify, support, and retain business talent and to create an entrepreneurial culture within the Granville area with a focus on educational workshops and events, business culture, and the development of youth engagement.    

We look forward to sharing your company at this first annual event...what a brilliant idea! The festivities begin with cocktails at 6:30 followed by dinner at 7:00pm. Reserve your space now!
