Inaugural Victory Ball 2013
1/26/2013, 5:23 p.m.
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 it was surely a night to remember.
The mission of Positive Business Women is to successfully prepare young girls and women with their self-confidence through mentorship, college and career readiness, leadership development, and lifestyle enhancement. P.B.W.'s goal is to remove any barrier which hinders learning and growth of these young women, as we "Go M.A.D."
Charitable donations from the event will directly benefit PBW's various initiatives, such as, the education of Heart Health Awareness in conjunction with the American Heart Association and The Heart Truth campaign. In addition, P.B.W. fully supports other women's issues such as the Affordable Health Care Act and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
When we asked Positive Business Women's Executive Director, Mary Bailey how did it feel to see everything come together to create such a special night, she said " 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 "P.B.W.". We're looking forward to our future endeavors that will allow us to expanding our program, workshop and also create scholarships.
We also asked her what's next for the organization Bailey said that they will be hosting their Annual "Mommy & Me... Cupcakes and Tea!". This event is held to welcome new girls into "Go MAD" (Make A Difference) program. The event includes an Afternoon Tea, Lunch, Etiquette Presentation and Surprises! The event is free. However the young ladies are encouraged to wear there Sunday's BEST!
All in all this was a great night for the attendees and Positive Business Women!
