There are very few stories that move me to tears but that is exactly what happened when I heard Sade’s Story. Sade Stephens was born with an undetected structural abnormality of the heart. This undetected disease caused her to go into cardiac arrest at the tender age of 17. Although she recovered from this horrific ordeal, her quality of life has suffered drastically. Like Sade, many African Americans, young and old, unknowingly suffer from heart disease.
In an effort to raise awareness, three very unique specialty companies decided to host a Woman’s Expo to assist in raising funds for Sade and her family as well as raise awareness about heart disease. g.l.a.m., an Atlanta based specialty image firm, famous for their “celebrity make-overs” joined forces with the Goddess Experience, a health and wellness company and Diva’s Unlimited, Inc., an entertainment consulting firm and came up with a creative, unique way to make health and wellness enjoyable. When asked why they chose “Sade’s Story,” they all agreed that something had to be done.
Women such as Ebony Porter-Ike, Managing Director of g.l.a.m., Rhonda Wilkins, CEO of Diva’s Unlimited, Inc. and Gigi Franklin of the Goddess Experience, inspire the community to want to give back. These women are changing the world by touching lives one at a time.
Please join g.l.a.m., Diva’s Unlimited, Inc. and the Goddess Experience as they present, “Queen…Living the Experience,” Sunday June 6, 2010, 3pm at Atlanta’s Hilton Garden Inn. Through a host of spectacular vendors, products, services, and entertainment, g.l.a.m., Diva’s Unlimited, Inc. and the Goddess Experience aim to make this an unforgettable experience.
As an added attraction, there will be a Q&A session hosted by an ALL MALE CELEBRITY PANEL titled, “Men Talk…You Ask/ He Tells.” Celebrity guest include; former NFLer Ed Hartwell (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Actor Greg Alan Williams (The Preacher’s Kid, The Game, The Sopranos), R&B Singer Dave Tolliver (Men At Large), Actor Brad James (Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns), Poet Hank Stewart and Curtis Eddleton of Eddleton events.
