Description

You are cordially invited to attend a celebratory brunch honoring Beverly E. Ledbetter Esq. on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 at Hotel Providence. The morning will begin with signature cocktails, networking, and live music, followed by an honorary program to recognize Beverly's profound achievements and contributions within her career and the Rhode Island community. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Frankie B. Ledbetter Endowed Fund at the Educational Advancement Foundation (EAF).

Beverly E. Ledbetter, Esq. served for over four decades as Brown University’s chief legal officer, Vice President and General Counsel. A graduate of Howard University and the University of Colorado Law School, Beverly spent her early career at the University of Oklahoma working as legal counsel and teaching. In 1978, she ventured east to become Brown’s first general counsel, a position from which she retired in 2018.

Beverly has long dedicated herself to communities beyond Brown University. A former Providence Housing Court judge, she helped to launch the Black Philanthropy Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation and has devoted time and expertise to organizations as diverse as the National Association of College and University Attorneys, the Thurgood Marshall Law Society, the Girl Scouts of Rhode Island, the Rhode Island Urban League, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and the Links Incorporated.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please contact Joi-Danelle Whitehead at joidanelle@gmail.com for more information.
