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!
The golf tournament is being hosted by Fergie Jenkins. 32 teams of four will come out and golf with celebrities to help raise money for scholarships at LeMoyne Owen college. The tournament will be held at Quail Ridge Golf Course.
The 5K Walk/Run attracts 1000 walkers/runners throughout the Mid-South area. Registration opens at 5 p.m. and the race starts at 7 p.m. Entertainment this year will be Kool Moe Dee.
The culminating event is the childrens breakfast. The breakfast is host to 500 children. The children are treated to a full breakfast, opportunity to meet the celebrities, and each child receive a gift bag full of items for school and play…
