Women’s Luncheon to Endorse Sisterhood

Austell, 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” to honor and celebrate sisterhood on Saturday, August 24th at the Lions Club, 620 Lions Club Dr in Mableton. The event is for women to bring another woman, who has 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 Minister Galetha Clemons-Thompson, a dynamic motivational speaker whose background is in social services with the Fulton County Department of Family and Children Services. Other special invited guests include local Filmmaker/Producer Yvonne Pierre and members of the Salvation Army Staff on Luckie Street.

 

The tickets are $25 each and can be purchased online at www.sistahsupport.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).
