Join United Way in empowering Our Youth, Our Future
MISSISSAUGA (August 16, 2013) – Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945) said, “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” This philosophy is the spirit behind the 2013 Unity in Diversity Gala being hosted by United Way of Peel Region’s Black Community Advisory Council on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
Hosted by Malton-born comedian Jay Martin and his young nephew, social advocate and youth justice worker Paul Chapman, the evening will celebrate and empower the black youth of Peel Region. A few of the youth being showcased are: Playwright Darren Anthony who will share passages from Secrets of a Black Boy;, The Peoples Project’s award-winning artist Kim Katrin Crosby will inspire us with her personal story about breaking barriers; and Canadian Idol Finalist Omar Lunan will serenade the guests. Tables for 10 are available for $750 and single tickets are $75 each. For tickets or more information contact Suelyn Knight, community outreach coordinator at (905) 602-3617 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is generously sponsored by RBC Royal Bank.
