Who inspires you? Is it the woman who is 93 years of age and still walks the runway? How about the woman who is over 70 and travels all around the world?
On March 20 at the beautiful Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe hundreds of women were impressed and inspired by seven magnificent women each more than 70 years of age at the BASH (The Black Association of South Hills) Ms. Senior Inspiration Annual Scholarship Luncheon.
|LADIES OF BASH— Diana Ward, Monica Williams, Deborah Holland and Norma Adams (BASH president).
Patrice King Brown, KDKA news anchor, was a beautiful emcee while Danielle Nottingham, WPXI, and yours truly had the honor of interviewing the fabulous seniors. They shared with the audience some words of wisdom and their philosophies on life. “Be honest, treat others like you want to be treated and cleanliness is next to godliness.” The ladies: Lillian G. Allen, Rose Edmondson, Yvonne Edwards, Susie B. Richardson, Betty Ann Robinson, Dr. Marie Upshur and Margie Byrd Walker modeled a business and evening outfit. Hattie Watts, a long-time member of BASH was also honored for her dedication to the organization.
As always the shopping bug was satisfied by the many vendors on hand and the 50/50 raffle yielded a whopping $600 with Dorothy Price as the winner.
In 32 years of existence, BASH has held numerous community events which are now annual projects. BASH has awarded more than 300 scholarships to deserving high school seniors in the areas south of Pittsburgh.
