THE PURPOSE: The honorable Jeffrey E. Turner, Chairman of the Clayton County Board of Commissioners is hosting the 3rd Annual Chairman Turner’s International Ball. This prestigious event will celebrate the rich heritage and diversity within Clayton County. Clayton County is home to numerous nationalities as well as international businesses with over 60 languages spoken throughout the county.
The event will be held on September 28, 2019, 6:30-10:00 pm at the Georgia International Convention Center, 2000 Convention Center Concourse, College Park. This year’s proceeds from the event will be donated to Marvelous Light Empowerment Association, Inc. (MLEA), the nonprofit which oversees the Woman University (Woman U) program. Woman U provides services, educational opportunities, and resources to equip women to become community leaders and business owners through a creative, supportive global network.
Currently partnered with Hearts to Nourish Hope’s Stabilization Program, which helps individuals to improve and increase the quality of life for eligible families, Woman University is growing strong in Clayton County. Since it’s inception, Woman U has produced several new female business owners, increased employment marketability, and created numerous community leaders who are now part of the solution and advocates for their families and others, throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan area.
Your support of this event not only supports the celebration of the diversity in Clayton County but it will also help to provide much needed mentoring and support to young girls in our community. Last year nearly 300 people came to enjoy an array of sights and sounds from all over the world represented here in Clayton County, GA.
We hope that you will join us in the celebration and our fundraising efforts to support our event this year.
