It’s no secret; I’m a advocate for community service. I believe we all have a responsibility to do what we can to give back. So when the civic engagement and career boutique, Friends of Ebonie, contacted me to serve on the Host Committee for Defining Young Black Philanthropy, I was both excited and honored!
On Thursday, February 21st, The National Headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women will serve as the venue for Defining Young Black Philanthropy- DC. This will be an energetic evening bringing together politicos, changemakers, and philanthropists for a candid discussion about social accountability, responsibility and action.
From 6:30 to 7:30pm, attendees will enjoy complimentary cocktails and desserts and have the opportunity to meet and greet with Washington, DC area non-profit organizations seeking to connect through leadership, volunteer and donor opportunities. Non-profits confirmed to attend include: D.R.E.A.M. Life Inc., A Legacy Left Behind, Dreams Work, The MusicianShip, Black Benefactors, Michelle In Training.
A panel discussion and in-depth discussion on philanthropy, civic engagement and social influence will follow the mixer. This event serves as a great opportunity to network and learn more about how you can become involved in philanthropy.
Tickets are available for purchase; early bird ticket sales end on Wednesday. You can purchase tickets at http://dybpdc.eventbrite.com/. At the bottom of the registration page, please indicate that I referred you!
Hope to see you on February 21st!
