Honoring men making a difference
The members of Upsilon Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated are beaming with delight about the upcoming A Fathers’ Affair Luncheon. The luncheon will be held Saturday, June 3, 2017, 12 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Fourteen years ago, a plan was introduced to honor men for outstanding contributions made to the community and to our youth. This year, members will be honoring men who are making an impact daily in the lives of others. They are Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whose work includes helping to keep our youth out of jail; Albert Tucker, Vice President of Multicultural Business Development for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, whose focus is bringing tourism and business to the South Florida area; and Sam Morrison, the creator behind the African American Library, whose innovation makes it possible daily for inner city children in Broward County to have a library to help them learn and grow. The keynote speaker is Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy Quince.
The PEARLS Foundation, Incorporated in collaboration with Upsilon Xi Omega Chapter, awards scholarships annually to high school graduating seniors and supports local, national, and international non-profit programs and organizations that serve the public.
