Once again we will have local vendors with a variety of items for sale at terrific prices. We are particularly grateful for their continued support and contributions. A big handful of gratitude and hattitude go out to our sponsors who understand that it takes all of us to truly make a difference in the community.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Southwest Mississippi Chapter has been in operation since 1996 here in Natchez, and the scholarship program is one of the coalition’s premier projects. The annual hat and fashion show is NCBW’s biggest fundraiser. Funds raised allow area youth — girls and boys — to receive scholarships as well as participate in numerous educational and cultural activities. Continued support will allow us to expand our reach and help empower more youth.

It is with great pleasure that we, the members of NCBW, bring this magnificent show to the Natchez area again this year. Tickets are $25, which includes a scrumptious lunch. Entertainment will be provided by Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Washington. Judge Anthony Heidelberg will serve as toastmaster. You are guaranteed to have a great time.

Tickets can be purchased from any Coalition member or by calling 601-442-5260 for tickets or more details.

 Emma Rose Jackson is general counselor for the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc.
