Join us on May 23 at 3pm for an afternoon filled with laughs, good music, great giveaways, and an online auction you won't want to miss! With performances by violinist Jonathan Levingston, artist Ebone Johnson, vocalist Chanel Bragg, saxophonist Colin Williams, and comedian Isaac "Doc" Farm, this virtual event is not to be missed. Our one of a kind “Looking Good and Feeling Good” and “Expand Your Mind” breakout rooms will provide experiences to edify your mind, body, and soul. Don't miss out! Grab your ticket today!
While COVID-19 has changed the way we all operate, the needs in the communities we serve are even greater. Proceeds from this virtual fundraiser will support scholarships for high school and college students and our community service initiatives, which are focused on our five-point programmatic thrust (economic development, educational development, international awareness and involvement, physical and mental health, and political awareness and involvement). All a great cause!
