The San Bernardino Branch of the NAACP will hold their Freedom Fund Dinner on October 28, 2010, 6:00 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel in San Bernardino. The guest speaker will be Kenny Morris, the great- great grandson of Booker T. Washington and the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass.
The theme for the evening is “Education is the Bridge to Success”. Honorees will include those from the local education community. The dinner sponsorships have already been secured from Southern California Gas and others are being solicited.
In making the selection of the theme, dinner chair Pat Small said the reason she chose it was because, “the workplace is different, for jobs in the future you need an education and because of that urgency students are at risk; we must shine a light on the good things going on in our community and keep the focus on the importance of education.”
There will be a silent auction and information on educational institutions in our community. There is an opportunity to place ads in the program, sponsor a table or become a gold, silver or bronze sponsor. Tickets are $75. Call 909.888-5040 for more information and to reserve your table.
