NAACP will be hosting its 29th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet

Hello all,

The Indiana County Unit of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will be hosting its 29th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet on Saturday, November 14, 2015.  The banquet will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. at the Park Inn Radisson, Indiana PA (formerly Holiday Inn) located on Wayne Avenue.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.

The theme for this year’s banquet is America’s Journey for Equality.  The speaker will be Mr. Chris Moore.  Mr. Moore is best-known for his work on Black Horizons on WQED-TV. He has co-hosted and produced the Emmy-winning series, the longest running minority-affairs program on public television, since 1968.  He also produced and narrated Wylie Avenue Days, an Emmy Award-winning documentary on the Hill District.  Mr. Moore is a Grambling State University graduate and Vietnam veteran.  We look forward to an exciting evening with him.

Tickets may be purchased for $30.00 each and $15.00 for children under 18 years old and students.  Advertisement may be placed in the program booklet on or before Wednesday, October 21, 2015.  We suggest that you purchase your tickets and advertisement space as soon as possible, as this helps with our publication.  If you are unable to attend the banquet, I ask that you send a representative and/or purchase advertisement space.  With your generosity and assistance we can continue to offer support in educational and civil rights issues in the local community.

If you are in need of further assistance, please feel free to send me an e-mail.

Thank you for your continued support of the NAACP.
