Meet & Greet

Meet & Greets provide our guests with the opportunity to socialize and converse with admirable role models of all ages and from all walks of life and life experiences.

Among these admirable role models are:

  • Young adults making positive life choices and setting positive examples for future generations;

  • Individuals from programs and agencies that work on a daily basis to assist women, children and families prevent and deal with the aftermath of adversity, abuse or injustice;
  • Individuals who have the integrity, courage and perseverance to live life from a positive perspective in spite of the adversity, abuse and injustice  they have encountered.
