To celebrate the re-election of President Barack Obama, Positive Business Women (PBW), a District-area non-profit, hosted "The Victory Inaugural Ball" on January 21, at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park. With performances by Maxwell, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Musiq Soulchild, and DC's own Bryan Mills and Secret Society, the event proved a night to remember.
The mission of Positive Business Women is to successfully prepare young girls and women for business careers by reinforcing their self-confidence through mentorship, college and career readiness, leadership development, and lifestyle enhancement.
Charitable donations from the event benefit the various PBW initiatives directly, including, Heart Health Awareness in conjunction with the American Heart Association and The Heart Truth campaign. Additionally, PBW fully supports other women's issues such as the Affordable Health Care Act and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
"I'm so thankful to God. I know that every good and perfect gift comes from Him. I'm so grateful for the opportunities that were offered to PBW. We're looking forward to our future endeavors that will allow us to expand our programs and workshops, and also to create scholarships," said Positive Business Women's Executive Director, Mary Bailey.
Bailey said that in the near future, PBW will host its annual Mommy & Me, Cupcakes and Tea social. This event helps welcome new girls into the "Go MAD" (Make a Difference) program. The event includes an afternoon tea, lunch, etiquette presentation and many surprises. The event is free and young ladies are encouraged to wear their Sunday best.
