FrYeWCA Fest

July 11th from 4pm-6pm

YWCA Greensboro – 1807 E. Wendover Ave., Greensboro, NC 27405

Thank you to all who joined us at the YWCA Greensboro on Sunday, July 11th from 4pm to 6pm for FrYeWCA Fest! Hosted by 102 Jamz, this event featured live performances from local musicians, food, a gallery inside the UNCG Mobile Art truck, a live podcast co-hosted by Bennett College, a creative activity for children, and a performance by an African Dance group. We gave out some great raffle prizes including Thirty One brand bags, gift cards, kayaking experiences, and Greensboro Grasshopper ticket packages! Despite a rainy morning, it turned out to be a beautiful summer day full of laughter and love surrounding our organization. We had the privilege of hearing words from Mrs. Shirley T. Frye herself! A special Thank You goes out to those who made this event possible. From donating raffle prizes to working the event, we are so grateful for the way this community never fails to rally behind us.

Thank You!
