The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. brings National Conference to Fort Lauderdale

More than 1,500 members of The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. will descend on sunny South Florida to celebrate their 28th annual conference June 12-15, 2014.

Bringing the power of economics to the Fort Lauderdale area through hotel rentals, plane tickets, restaurants, entertainment, and shopping is only one way in which the 100 Black Men will positively impact the community. The organization also brings the power of education and healthy living to areas that are oft-times over-looked and underserved.

Each year in the host city, the national organization joins forces with the local chapter to bring positive change and information to inner-city communities. This year, The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. will join forces with The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter for their Community Empowerment Project (CEP): “My Brother’s Keeper: Mentoring the 100 Way Across A Lifetime”, Saturday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Dillard High School, 2501 N.W. 11 St., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The CEP will feature a Health & Wellness Fair with a variety of free health screenings, mentoring workshops, a youth talent showcase, food, entertainment and great give-aways for the entire family, such as bikes, I-Pads, I-Pods, flat screens, laptops and more. For additional information call (754) 281-2556.

The CEP will also take time during the event to honor the U.S. Army’s birthday with cake and ice cream, a scholarship presentation and a Hometown Hero Recognition.

Be sure to bring the entire family to attend this free event Saturday, June 14, 2014 at Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

To schedule an interview with a national representative or with the President of The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter, Dennis Wright, please call (754) 281-2556.
