39th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner

39th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner

The Flint Branch NAACP is delighted to announce its 39th Annual Freedom Fund Dinner, which will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 6:00 P.M., (VIP Reception 5:00-6:00 P.M.).  This black-tie gala will be held at Holiday Inn Gateway Centre, 5353 Gateway Centre Dr., Flint, MI  48507.  This year’s theme is When We Fight, We Win!”.  We celebrate the gains for freedom this organization has made in its 111 year history and our resolve to fight for everyone to be counted in the 2020 Census and fight that everyone registers to vote, while we fight that every eligible voter is able to cast an unfettered ballot in every election.  When We Fight We Win!

This year the Sponsorship packets include a Scholarship Opportunity for our ACT-SO (Afro-Academic Cultural Technological Scientific Olympics) Program.  This will allow scholarships for 9th -12th grade students who compete at the local level in the 32 different categories.  Please take a few moments to visit the NAACP ACT-SO website to see the benefits of supporting and encouraging our youth.

The Flint Branch of the NAACP continues to edify the community through the implementation of initiatives which focuses on alleviating health and educational disparities, promoting financial equity, addressing labor discrimination, and providing scholarship endowments to Genesee County students.  Facilitation of these initiatives is essential upon financial assistance and personal investments provided by you and the community as a whole.

Please refer to enclosures for sponsorship opportunities and submit all paperwork by February 7, 2020.  Please make checks payable to Flint Branch NAACP and forward Corporate Sponsorship and Souvenir Journal forms, along with payment to Flint Branch NAACP, P.O. Box 1107, Flint, MI  48501-1107.
