Yesterday, the One World team had the pleasure of celebrating Council Member Wanda Adams’ birthday at our Salsa Against Violence themed party supporting the Houston Area Women’s Center. Local salsa instructor Michael Whitmire of Salsa Grande, was on hand to teach party-goers all the moves. Carolyn Soto of Perfectly Imperfect Designs donated photography services and pictures will soon be available online.
“As a husband, father and business owner it is important that we continue to assist our neighbors, particularly when they are the most vulnerable,” said event sponsor Paul Cannings of RPH Consulting. “We’re proud to stand with the community against sexual and domestic violence.”
During the event Wanda shared a story of having her eyes opened to the tragedy of sexual and domestic violence while traveling with Host Committee member, Mia Wright (First Lady Fountain of Praise) to Cape Town where a woman is violated every three seconds. Dana Baker of the Houston Area Women’s Center expressed gratitude for the support and shared how the contributions would assist families in need.
This event would not have been possible with the support of:
Cynthia M. Butler-McIntyre, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
