A Black & Blue Affair-108

Livingstone College Alumni at the Black & Blue Affair Jazz Brunch

February 7, 2015

What a great time we had on Saturday, February 7th at our first “A Black & Blue Affair” Jazz Brunch! More than 150 people attended, enjoying the food, fellowship and jazz provided by sax player Marcus Anderson. We had great community support, excellent involvement by chapter members and the food was great.

Thanks to Dr. Herman J. Felton, Jr. (SVP & Vice President of Institutional Advancement) for attending the event and providing remarks. Also, thanks to Delores Johnson (LCNAA Candidate for President) from the Greensboro Chapter and Warren Arrington (LCNAA Candidate for Treasurer) from the Raleigh/Wake Chapter for attending.

A few weeks ago, the chapter provided food for the men and women’s basketball team when they played WSSU here in W-S. It was a win-win, as we also had a Pizza Hut fundraiser the same day. Each team member had an individual, large, two-topping pizza along with complimentary cinnamon sticks provided by Pizza Hut. Coaches and staff were also provide their food selection.

The chapter recently made a donation to the school to provide funds for purchase of travel bags and book packs for the women’s basketball team. They should have them in time for the CIAA Tournament. And, they are deserving at 22-0 and ranked #5 nationally.

The CIAA basketball tournament is approaching fast and we have the opportunity to support one of our own, a Food Lion Miss CIAA 2015 candidate, LaQuazaya Davis-Brown. Vote for her here and spread the word.

We are on to the next project . . .
