A New Me Foundation, Inc. Hosts “Real Talk” Forum Fundraiser to Assist Victims of Domestic Violence

Grassroots non-for-profit, A New Me Foundation, Inc. seeks to empower women with a real talk forum hosted by Comedienne Buff Bay during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.




CHICAGO, September 23,2013--A New Me Foundation, Inc. presents "Real Talk Relationship Forum" hosted by Comedienne Rashida "Buff Bay" Lucas. Comedienne "Buff Bay" has been seen on Divorce Court, R & B Divas of Atlanta, Jokes n Notes, and the Laugh Factory. The forum is Saturday October 26, 2013 from 8:00pm-11:00pm at the Epic Luxury Boutique Chicago, IL. The forum serves as a fundraiser for A New Me Foundation, Inc. to continue to provide FREE services to victims, survivors, and their families who are affected by domestic violence. The event will include raffle prizes, refreshments, cocktails, and entertainment. A New Me Foundation invites everyone to come for an opportunity to enjoy an atmosphere of fun and empowerment.


A New Me Foundation, Inc. will host this forum during the month of October in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, "Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women's advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels'.



A New Me Foundation, Inc. founder, Felicia Simpson says, "Providing services to women in need is necessary. As a former victim, I know the everyday needs that may go unmet when making the transition out of relationships ended by domestic violence. This is why we raise funds to help A New Me Foundation provide free workshops to empower victims of domestic violence by purchasing supplies for the workshops to empower victims of domestic violence by purchasing supplies for the workshops and sponsoring a woman and her children living in a domestic violence shelter with toiletries, washing detergent, gift cards from grocery stores, bus passes, bedding, bibles, school supplies, uniforms, and journals."


This event promises to be interactive and informative for everyone in attendance. A New Me Foundation, Inc. welcomes the participation of local businesses and media. All media and vendors that would like to get involved in this and any future A New Me Foundation events through sponsorship, promotion, or service should contact Felicia Simpson.
