Brown Image Award event rescheduled to June 27

PHILADELPHIA, May 13 – State Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, D-Phila., has announced her 190th Legislative District Image Awards event, scheduled for this Saturday, has been postponed until Saturday, June 27.  

The event will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 27, at the Christian Stronghold Church 4701 Lancaster Ave., Philadelphia.

"I will be honoring nearly 200 women at this event," Brown said. "Unfortunately, the original date did not work for a large number of honorees, so a new date has been selected. I want to be able to honor as many recipients in person as possible, so the new date gives them six weeks to clear their schedules."

About 190 local women who have been active in the community were nominated and will receive certificates acknowledging their contributions to the city. This year’s honorees come from all walks of life and careers, from pastors and educators to municipal workers and community volunteers.

The winners are cited under various categories; among them are: integrity, strength, wisdom, courage and humanity.
