This past Saturday, as many of you've already heard or read about we held the 1st Annual PLUS Awards, benefiting the non-profit organization "Forgiving For Living, Inc." (www.forgivingforliving.com  ) and it was definitely a time to remember.  I want to personally thank everyone that came out and celebrated with us at the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

Wow, let's look at the month of May!  May is crazy busy as we leave Spring and get ready for Summer.  May is the time that we celebrate mother's on Mother's Day (more on that in next week's column), we also begin to have Graduations (as a matter of fact just yesterday I received an announcement about my nephew, Xavier's graduation coming up -  Congratulations!), but we also have a ton of events that will hit our social and community circuit.   At a glance here are a few that we recommend you look out for in May...

  • The Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation will be celebrating their 33rd Annual Scholarship Luncheon, Fashion Show by "V" Boutique & Silent Auction. Their theme is: "Filling the Pipeline: Developing Tomorrow's Leaders." This event will be on Saturday, May 3rd at the Marriott Marina del Rey. To learn more about them please visit http://www.blackwomenlawyersla.com/ or call PSP (626) 791-3847.
  • The California Legislative Black Caucus Foundation will be holding their annual Conference here in Los Angeles May 9th - 10th. The theme for this year's event is, "Partnering For Progress: From Vision to Reality." It will be held at the Sheraton LAX Hotel. There are free workshops/seminars that will be held on Friday and Saturday culminating with a Gala Dinner on Saturday night.

  • The Canaan Group will hold their 2nd Annual Gala Dinner at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on May 15th.

Also next week we will give you information about the historic Los Angeles Swearing in of Speaker-Elect Karen Bass!

Give your all in all that you do. Then the PLUS won't just be more, it will be the difference!
