The NAACP Oranges & Maplewood Branch Freedom Fund Gala 109th Anniversary

"Rising to the Challenge, Answering the Call"

Keynote Speaker: Jeh Johnson

Attire: Business Formal or Semi Formal

Dear Friends and Supporters:

The Oranges and Maplewood Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, (www.OMNAACP.org), will celebrate its 109th Annual Freedom Fund Gala, on Saturday, April 9, 2022, 7:00 p.m. at the beautiful Cedar Hill Country Club, located at 100 Walnut Street, Livingston, NJ. This year’s theme is:"Rising to the Challenge, Answering the Call", The NAACP has made significant strides to advance our quest for justice and equality, for all people. In this turbulent political climate, the NAACP — now, more than ever — remains as relevant today as when it was founded 113 years ago; with respect to its important and sacred mission — excelling at the forefront of transformative change.

As you are well aware: freedom is not Free. Freedom Fund events are the major fundraising activity of all Units of the NAACP. The proceeds from the Gala, finance the year-long programs sponsored by the Branch in the areas of education, housing, economic development, health and our youth. Our partnership with the corporate and civic community, has provided the financial resources to make each event a resounding success. The continued favor of our community partners helps us to continue the important work needed to address the demands for programs and activities that enrich our community and our lives. Enclosed is information on the various levels of participation.

We are extremely honored and pleased to announce that Jeh Johnson has accepted our invitation to serve as keynote speaker.

We are equally proud to salute the distinguished achievements of our 2022 Class of honorees in the following service categories: Eileen Defreece Wilson (Education), Not Orange, Inc. (Civic), Rev. Dana Owens(Religious Affairs), Ernest Williams (Labor & Industry), Shauger Group (Corporate), and Darrell Terry (President’s Award).

On behalf of the Oranges and Maplewood Branch — the oldest Branch in the State of New Jersey, and third-oldest in the Nation, founded on April 18, 1913 — our sincere gratitude for your time, interest and consideration. Should you have any questions or require additional information, please call Lady Trisha Scipio at 973-339-7795 or by email at: freedomfund@omnaacp.org
