Hank Aaron Celebrity Sports Weekend

Standard

Wow! Time really moves fast. It is already the seventh month of this year. Those of us that believe in starting early will have to start our Xmas shopping soon. LOL Well its a busy time of the year for me. I am the chair person for the 38th Annual UNCF Banquet benefiting The LeMoyne Owen College in Memphis, TN. The banquet is the opening event for the Hank Aaron Celebrity Sports Weekend (HACSW). This weekend encompasses a banquet (Thursday night), golf tournament (Friday morning), a 5K Walk/Run (Friday evening), and Children Breakfast (Saturday morning). We are heavily in the planning stages. We have secured the entertainment for the gala-Randy Crawford and Joe Sample. YEAH!
