TAWC partners association to support Ovie Brume Foundation
In celebration of Thanksgiving last year, the American Women’s Club of Lagos and the AERA American Guest Quarters (the GQ) worked together to donate part of the proceeds from the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner held Nov 24, 2016, to the Ovie Brume Foundation.
The non- profit organization provides enrichment programs throughout Nigeria. The organization’s mission is to give young people the same focus as its namesake, “to improve life and opportunity for all through leaning the merits of personal dedication to community and hard work”.
The main center operates many literacy, technology and language programs at its location in Victoria Island.The Thanksgiving representatives from the organization participated in sharing the Thanksgiving meal and diners had an opportunity to hear about the mission of the organization.
“Thanksgiving celebrations in the United States typically focus on being grateful for the blessings one has in life and sharing those blessings with others in your community. The American Women’s Club is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such a worthy cause during the celebration hosted by the American Guest Quarters. We wish the Ovie Brume foundation continued success in its endeavours,” the organizers said.
They gave special thanks to Ricardo Minaise (GM, GQ), Sherrine Boseman (TAWC Board Secretary), Janet Adetu (TAWC Charity Chair), and Patrenia Werts Onuoha (TAWC President).
