Ashley Day Girls Expo!
This is our 3rd Annual Ashley Day which celebrates our founder and director becoming the first elected African American woman to the Garfield Heights Board of Education. Because of this amazing accomplishment, Former Mayor Vic Collova presented her with a day in the city. Each year, she hosts a Civic Engagement event in the community and this year, the focus is young women!
Young women of all ages are welcome to attend this event as they enjoy being empowered by local women who look likee them! We will have Pearl Empowered bring her closet to our space as girls get to shop free clothes, shoes and jewelry! Girls will get to learn new skills, learn about scholarships, craft, eat yummy food and enjoy the 360 Photo Booth sponsored by Boss Code Media!
We are so excited to embrace our young ladies as we celebrate Black Girl Magic!

The Sevynteenth Community Yard Sale event will be held on June 4th from 12PM-5PM, which will feature unique items the community will sell to raise funds for the campers of the Sevynteenth Foundation Summer Camp.
"For every dollar that is raised through the Sevynteenth Community Yard Sale, each dollar will be doubled through IOBY.org to assist with the campers fees," Thomas said.
This will be the 4th annual Summer Camp for Sevynteenth Foundation. The foundation provides a fun learning experience for the youth during their Summer break!
A lot of our campers cannot fund the entire camp cost, so we would like to offer scholarships and discounts!
Sevynteenth Foundation is hoping that we can count on you to support our campers this year as we make a difference in our community!
