Congratulations to WURD’s own Stef Renée, Program Director and host of “The MOJO,” and Sales Director Monica Lewis! Both will be honored on February 18 at Joan Shepp’s 15th annual “Women of Substance and Style” awards in celebration of Black History Month.
This prestigious event recognizes local African American women who are “a pillar of strength and tower of motivation” in making a difference in the community.
On Wednesday, February 18 from 5 – 8:00 pm, Joan Shepp (1811 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA) will open its doors for an evening of shopping, music, drinks, and food. Each honoree will be recognized for her contributions to the community and presented with a certificate of recognition. All are welcome to attend.
Organizers announced that 10% of the proceeds from the day’s sales will be donated to the African American Children’s Book Project, and organization that provides parents, caregivers and educators from the Philadelphia region tools for children to read outside of their normal school coursework, and make more responsible decisions about their lifestyles.
