It was important and intriguing for me to cover The Motherless Foundation Gala because I grew up not being raised by my natural mother, who eventually passed away before I became an adult. Though I’ve had several great mentors the void of not having my birth mother around is still present. The concept and mission of the The Motherless Daughters Foundation program is one that hits very close to home for me. Myself along with VOW-Inspire Network look forward to supporting it however possible.
The Motherless Daughters Foundation hosted their 4th Annual Gala in Atlanta, GA. on October 16, 2016 in support of it’s mission to enrich the lives of young girls living without their natural mothers. VOW-Inspire Network (Voice Of Wisdom) was grateful to cover the event.
The Motherless Daughter’s Foundation is a mentoring program that offers year round support so that girls can become empowered to embrace every aspect of adolescent life and ultimately succeed in spite of challenging circumstances. Young ladies ages 9-15 participate in a variety of educational workshops and experiences.
The gala also served as a silent auction in order to raise money for the program. Taliah Waajid founder of Taliah Waajid Natural Hair Care Products was a sponsor and Honoree at the event. Fellow Honorees included GA State Senator Donzella James, Director of Public Affairs for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Myrna White, and former NFL Defensive Player DeMario Pressley.
Beautiful music and well-dressed attendees filled the halls of the Georgia International Convention Center. The gala which is one of many events that the foundation hosts on behalf of the mission was and inspiration and a success. Hopefully the organization will be heading toward many more galas in the future with support from the community. The foundation currently holds the gala every year.
VOW-Inspire Network (Voice Of Wisdom) was happy to be on site providing media coverage for the event. More pictures of the 4th Annual Motherless Daughters Foundation Gala can be found in the album here on VOW-Inspire Network’s Facebook fan page.
