Celebrating Sisterhood with The New York Liberty
In honor of the Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc. (FFAWN)
New York, NY--, 2009 – The New York Liberty of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) will host a “Sisterhood Day” at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, September 13th, prior to the team’s game against the Washington Mystics at 4:00 p.m.
The Liberty and WNBA are about women’s empowerment. It is about women using their talent and skill to make a positive difference and inspiring women everywhere to achieve their goals. Beyond the message of inspiration lies the desire to help women’s organizations grow and develop by giving them the support they need to successfully help women in need.
With this in mind, the Liberty has organized a special event for women from all organizations to come together, network and share in the embodiment of Sisterhood! This is an opportunity for regional and national women’s organizations to network, experience the excitement of a Liberty game in “The World’s Most Famous Arena” and come together to support an important cause to empower women.
Attending women and organizations will enjoy the opportunity to interact with community leaders and the who’s who of the professional world. Participating organizations will also enjoy seeing their name appear on Gardenvision during the game. Tickets for the networking gala and the game are $40.00. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc. (FFAWN).
