On behalf of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., I enthusiastically encourage each of you to attend the 16th Annual Madam CJ Walker Luncheon Fundraiser.
Madam CJ Walker’s legacy continues to be part of our tradition to highlight her achievements as an entrepreneur and philanthropist. Ms Walker’s contributions are well documented which provides a standard for NCBW to honor four remarkable women who have made a significant impact in their careers and community.
You are also in for a treat with our essay winner Positive Stepper, Camille Batiste, an 8th grader from the Athenian School, and member of the NCBW Leadership Mentoring Program, who will deliver her outstanding presentation on Building Bridges for Success.
An encore presentation from the Honorable Judge Glenda Hatchett will provide us insight of the National trends that will require key initiatives in the community to impact social change. Additionally, she will remind each of us of the importance of mentorship in making a difference in the life of a young person to become a better student, family member and citizen in their perspective communities. NCBW welcomes the Honorable Judge Hatchett to join us again.
We also hold in high esteem our Sponsors who partner with NCBW by providing resources to support our major programs such as Positive Steps, a year round Leadership Mentorship Program for girls (12-17 years old), Sistah’s Getting Real about HIV/AIDS is a community awareness program designed to encourage testing to know one’s status and the ongoing scholarship program for high school graduates, current college students and working women returning to higher education. Your continued support of NCBW’s Mission and Vision positively impacts the lives of many women and girls.
Congratulations to our NCBW leaders, Aisha Brown, 1st Vice President and Luncheon Chair along with Shari Wooldridge, 3rd Vice President and Luncheon Co – Chair for executing our Luncheon. To the entire Madam CJ Walker Committee, let’s thank you for your creativity, dedication, and tenacity over the many months to plan this momentous occasion.
Join us for this memorable day and share your experiences and recommendations with our members. We appreciate each and every one of you and we value your ideas and input as we make plans for our 17th Annual Madam CJ Walker Luncheon Fundraiser.
