Earlier this month, Precious Magee, founder of Growth Opportunity Devotion, Inc., gathered together a group of women for an afternoon brunch titled “Dining with Queens” to encourage the unity and uplifting power of women.
Growth Opportunity Devotion, Inc. or G.O.D. Inc, as it is often referred to, is a non-profit organization in New Orleans, LA, that helps the homeless, empowers women, and saves the youth.
The two “Queens” of the event were women that have experienced unfortunate circumstances in their lives. One of the young ladies was a homeless mother with one daughter who lived in a shelter, while the other young lady was in a terrible car accident resulting in major body injuries that still require surgery.
Magee along with caring vendors and contributors, gave these two ladies a day of pampering, getting their hair, nails, and make up done while also providing them attire to wear for the brunch. The day was not complete without a few words from motivational speaker, Mr. Robert Nolden, who shared encouraging words to help everyone with their life journey.
“August 3rd was my first brunch but it (will not) be the last and there will be plenty more events to look forward to from Dining with Queens Empowerment & Networking. Follow us on Instagram at @Diningwithqueensnola on facebook like page ‘Dining with Queens,” Magee says.
