SMYRNA, Ga.- Catty fights and talking behind each other’s backs are a few stigmas associated with the cliché of how “women don’t get along”. Instead of buying in to that cliché, Ieshea Hartwell, Founder of Agapé Christian Counseling Center (ACCC), decided to plan and host a “Sistah Friend Luncheon” Fundraiser to honor and celebrate sisterhood. The event takes place at the Taylor-Brawner Hall in Smyrna on Saturday, August 23rd. It is for women to bring other women, who have impacted their lives in a positive way- that woman could be her mother, sister, aunt, friend, cousin, neighbor, co-worker, etc.
“As women, we don’t spend enough time telling our sisters that they have it going on,” Hartwell laughs. “This event is all about taking that first step to making it a part of our own lives and hopefully it will break cultural and generational curses.”
All guests will be highly encouraged to wear hats for the “Parade of Hats” Runway portion of the program. ACCC’s brother organization, Men on Point, will prepare the food for the luncheon and serve the ladies as a way of honoring them. The keynote speaker is Elaine Bryant, a speaker who definitely is after God’s own heart. Bryant currently serves on ACCC’s Board of Directors as the Treasurer.
The tickets are $25 each and can be purchased online at https://celebratesistahfriends.eventbrite.com or you can purchase them directly from the ACCC by calling 404.913.6221
ACCC is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization that focuses on the counseling needs of adult individuals, couples and groups and hosts free monthly workshops for the community on various subjects through its W.O.W. Ministries (women of worth).
