UFE-TV ACCESS was granted into the Literacy 2 Legacy Awards! This was the 10th Year Anniversary Benefit Celebration: Casino Royale. Man this was a superdope event! Always good seeing familiar faces, and this event was the epitome of a good time, all for a good cause. There was an extravagant green carpet, gaming, silent auctions, and awards. This Monte Carlo Casino Royale will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead, hosted by actor and comedian Rodney Perry and sounds provided by Majic 107.5's DJ Hershey.
The honorees included: The Honorable Mayor Kasim Reed (Empowerment Award), Ryan Cameron (Legacy Award), Carl Payne (Trailblazer Award), Eric Matthews (Game Changer Award), Shashicka Tyre-Hill (Entrepreneur Award), Eugene Grdner (Mentor Award), Deontate Hann (Overcomer Award), and Alesha Thomas-Morgan (Advocacy Award).
The reason for this event was to not only celebrate but to donate. Literacy 2 Legacy, Inc's., founded by Diana Lynch, Esq., latest venture is the Legacy House which will be headquartered in the Mechanicsville community. There were silent auctions in the back of the room with items and services from Derek Blanks, dream vacations, and more. All donations and proceeds from this event will benefit the Legacy House. The Legacy House will be the administrative headquarters for homeless women and children to provide a year-long incubator program for 14 families who are transitioning from homelessness back to society and giving them a place to stay so they can get back on their feet.
The 10th Anniversary Benefit Celebration Casino Royale attracted a strong VIP list of over 400 elected officials, celebrity guests, television personalities, athletes, nonprofit organizations, corporate and legal professionals. This party served a strong purpose and was most definitely an evening to remember. Attendees also enjoyed passed out hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
