I am doing a profile on the Liberian Women’s Initiatives (LiWIM) that I should be publishing sometime next week. Anyway, they are having a fund-raising for one of their programs where they work with high school girls. Its really impressive, the work that they are doing. Consider supporting them. Details below:
What better way is there to honor mothers than to attend this classy fundraiser on the eve of Mother’s Day, May 8? In fact, invite all the special ladies in your life to enjoy some live jazz and wine. It’s for a great cause!
Please join my friends and me for “Afterglow” – a wine & jazz fundraiser to benefit the Liberian Women’s Initiatives –Minnesota (LiWIM) programs addressing teenage pregnancy and school dropout among female African American and African immigrant students.
“Afterglow” features a live jazz performance by the Geoff Jones Trio (Sounds of Blackness). Savor complimentary wine* and hors d’oeuvres, while relaxing to varied yet consistently sultry jazz tunes; the Jones Trio runs the gamut – incorporating elements of funk, R&B, and neo-soul; from 9pm – 12am. Interlude music provided by Charles Dennis, host/producer of the African Roots Connection on KMOJ radio FM 89.9.
Continue basking in the “Afterglow” until 3am with DJ Sam Tokpa.
