(BPRW) Carrie Meek Foundation to Sponsor the 7th Annual Black Heritage Festival on February 29th

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL -- The Carrie Meek Foundation, Inc. has always been a supporter of diverse events that celebrate the many accomplishments of African Americans.  This year will be no different.  The Foundation has once again signed on to serve as a sponsor of Honorable District 1 County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan’s 7th Annual Black Heritage Festival. The event takes place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the Betty T. Ferguson Recreational Complex, in the City of Miami Gardens. The purpose of the event is to bring together the diverse Black Cultures through the expression of art, in its varying forms, to illustrate the differences, as well as the similarities that we all share as one community.

 

“We are delighted to support Commissioner Jordan as a Gold Partnership Sponsor for this year’s event,” said Tony Crapp, Sr., Executive Director of The Carrie Meek Foundation, Inc. “We could not pass up on this opportunity to celebrate the diversity of African American culture and values, as well as the great achievements of so many history makers in our community.”         

 

Crapp shared that as a Gold Partnership Sponsor, the Carrie Meek Foundation will have a display table at the event with informational handouts regarding the ongoing focus areas of the Foundation - Education, Housing, Health, and Economic Development.
