There were memory boards all over the room and the ladies really enjoyed seeing themselves and friends on them. It was really a nice event, everyone was so excited to see each other. They’re all so supportive too.
The ladies are watching clips of themselves on the big screen. It was so fun.
The award that was given out was the “Janis Hill Spirit of Community” award which was created to honor an alumni who has demonstrated commitment to our mission of charitable giving and community involvement. Janis Hill, a Liberty Belle in the 80s, helped to create our first and most successful event that raised over $170,000 for the Susan G. Koman Foundation and was a tireless ambassador and advocate for African -American women and their need for preventative breast cancer screening. She passed away in January of 2011. The recipient in the photo is Sandi Flynn. The trophy was donated by Spikes Trophies. – Erin Goga
