Fearless Masquerade Ball 2018

Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Lena Lewis (founder of Honeymane Hair and Marketing Executive) and Dartesia Pitts (attorney and legal analyst for Fatal Attraction) have joined forces to shed light on the issues surrounding domestic violence in the black community.  Our partnership is intended to raise awareness and money to support necessary domestic violence resources in our community to save lives. In doing so, we are hosting a masquerade ball that will culminate from a month long social media campaign from designated accounts highlighting the issues associated with domestic violence #FearlessBall2018.  It is our belief that awareness is the key to prevent any additional fatalities. 

The beneficiary of our efforts is the Ujima Community which is the National Center on Violence Against Women in the Black Community.  They are a part of the broader campaign and will attend the featured event.
