HARAMBEE CONNECTION

Our Treasures, Our Jewels, Our Women On Saturday August 9 at the Midwest Express Center the Milwaukee Community Journal will honor about 50 Milwaukee African-American women. Tickets for the Gala, which includes a dinner and silent auction, are $85.00 each. They can be purchased at the Milwaukee Community Journal, located at 3612 N. Martin Luther King Drive. For additional information please contact Mamie Scott at 265-5300. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Todd Thomas Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship for medical students. One woman will be selected as Woman of the Year. African World Festival, one of Milwaukee’s lakeside summer events, has been cancelled for this year. Like many other budgets, theirs felt the pinch. Organizers and festival goers are looking forward to a great comeback in summer of 2009. Fund raising efforts are currently underway.
