The Jefferson City Branch of the NAACP will host its 46th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner in conjunction with the celebration of the NAACP’s 100th at the Capitol Plaza Hotel on Saturday, October 3, 2009. As always, this is an occasion to reflect upon the past and embrace our future. We invite you to join us as we celebrate our theme, “100 Years: Living the Legacy.”
The Annual Freedom Fund Dinner is our primary fund-raiser to support branch activities and operation expenses. These funds provide college scholarships, access to limited legal information, support for local prison branches as VIC’s (Volunteers in Corrections), officer training at district and state meetings, and representative participation at state and national conferences. In addition, chapter volunteers work with area school districts to promote understanding about diversity concerns, and work with the Armed Services on equity issues. In an effort to continue work with these and other community endeavors, this branch requires approximately $15,000 per year. Since this is a volunteer organization, no funds are used for salaries. We would appreciate your support as an attendee, sponsor, and/or benefactor.
Call 573-230-6424 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to order your tickets.
The Freedom Fund Dinner Committee and branch officers have again worked hard on this year’s evening of recognition and fellowship. Our first silent auction starts at 5:45 p.m., reception starts at 6:00 p.m. and dinner follows at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $50 individually or as part of an organizational sponsorship. Tickets for students are $15 and $10 for children under 12. In conjunction with this year’s dinner, we are happy to offer a beautiful book – NAACP: Celebrating a Century 100 Years in Pictures.
I look forward to seeing you at the Capitol Plaza Hotel on October 3rd at the 46th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner. Your participation is truly appreciated.
