I would like to invite you to our 1st annual Women of Power and Prestige black-tie formal. The purpose of this event is to recognize revolutionary leaders included but not limited to Georgia's nonprofit sector and to celebrate them—while inspiring and motivating others. This event will cater to women in business leadership and philanthropy. 

The 1st Annual Women of Achievement, Vision, Power and Prestige excellence awards will be presented each year to exceptional women, who through their leadership and pioneering spirit have made significant contributions to our community. This year’s confirmed  guest and panel speakers  include, Michelle Rasmussen;  Boy Scouts of America, Diane Cameron; Youth Sports Performing Arts,  Charly McCracken; Motivational Pearls, Dr. Lynette T. Dandridge; Thompson & Dandridge Solutions, Lynitta Mitchell-Blackwell; Stone Mountain Lithonia Chapter National Coalition for 100 Black women, Kimberly Hanes; Ombi Group ,Dr. Nedra Dodds; Opulence Aesthetics Cosmetic Surgery, Nicole Garner; The Garner Circle PR,Jolene Freeman, Lashonia Mabin;O'Hannah's Hair Studio, Shalawn; LAMIK beauty expert, Kimberly Hopper, Assistant VP - Commercial Lending for SunTrust Bank. 

The event will be held on May 16th, 2009 from 6pm to 10pm at a Snellville City Hall, Snellville, GA. You may visit their website for more information on the location. www.snellville.org. 

We will recognize and honor women native to or clearly identified with the State of Georgia, who have made extraordinary contributions within their fields of endeavor, and who will thus inspire future generations to utilize their own talents. We recognize many known figures from Georgia’s history, but we are also able to tell some previously untold stories about women in Georgia’s who are going beyond their call of duty.  We have been able to share many stories of women who pulled themselves up by bootstraps and left indelible marks on their communities and the state. These women come from all over the state and represent a wide variety of achievements in their respective fields.  

You'll find a fresh lens on the new executive woman, provocative insights about women leaders and their ability to demonstrate vision, profiles of power women at the top of their game despite the recession, practical advice on leadership and the impact it has on the community. 

These honorees are incredible role models for Button Up America participants, helping them see just what a determined woman can accomplish in her lifetime. In addition to honoring these great women, all proceeds will go to support  Button Up America, Bella Elite Noir programs which provide meaningful mentorship, work and leadership opportunities for urban, low-income young women.

B.E.N is committed to using creative talents to conceptualize and produce events that will collectively unite those within the fashion, design, corporate, political, celebrity, social and philanthropic communities, to raise funds and awareness for a variety of worthy causes that provide assistance and long-term solutions to those in need of Button Up America's services.  

We would be thrilled to have you attend the event. 

Please do accept our invitation. 


We look forward to hearing from you! 


Thank you for your time and consideration
