Philadelphia Congress Member Reception & Fashion Show

On behalf of the Philadelphia Congress of the National Congress of Black Women, I would like to invite you to participate in our unique Member Reception & Fashion Review. The Member Reception & Fashion Review will take place on Saturday, November 15 at 3:00 pm - 7:00 p.m. at the historic Cliveden House, 6401 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19144. The purpose of the Member Reception & Fashion Review is to bring together the brilliant and creative minds of our African American women who are interested in progressing the mission of the Congress. Network, hear and share war stories and be encouraged by the successes of each other. Let us begin the dialogue on how we can better utilize our collective strength toward full economic and empowerment in the Philadelphia Region.
