Homelessness, domestic violence and racism are uncomfortable subjects that are often avoided in society, especially in social situations. In an effort to encourage open dialogue about these critical problems that are plaguing the Birmingham community, the YWCA Central Alabama will be hosting its inaugural YWhisper event on Wednesday, July 18th.
YWhisper is an event designed to engage Birmingham young professionals and others and to highlight and promote the programs and services of the YWCA - it's "not your typical cocktail conversation."
The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on The Rooftop of the Kress Building in Downtown Birmingham. This event is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased for $25.00 and include heavy hors d'oeuvres and libations.
A big YW thank you to the devoted committee members who have worked hard to make this event a success! Former YW Junior Board President Jamika Kirk serves as chair of the event. Committee members include Brooke Adams, Kitty Brown, Ann Cade, Noelle Cooper, Sheetal Cordry, Bevan Dowd, Tammy Fincher, Regan Liggins, Latonia Harris, Darlene Hartmann, Anne Kettig, Michael Krombach, Carolyn Lam, Meg Cook Laney, Kerri Malone, Bacarra Sanderson Mauldin, Mackenzie Myers, Anna Catherine Roberson, Mary Elizabeth Roberson, Mollie Salyer, Jay Saxon, Melinda Sellers, Jacob Smith, Holly Stiles, Lora Terry, Sam Todd, Courtney Truss, Nate Wade and Tameka Wren.
