SIOUX CITY -- The Sioux City Branch of the NAACP is hosting its annual Freedom Fund Dinner, one of its major fundraisers, Feb. 17 at the Sioux City Convention Center.
Iowa-Nebraska State Area Conference President Betty Andrews will give an update to NAACP members and general public attendees about local, regional and national NAACP initiatives, with a particular emphasis on this year’s theme of “Steadfast and Immovable.”
In addition, winning art exhibits from the annual Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Art Contest, open to all Siouxland K-12 students, will be on display. The art is divided into grade school, middle school and high school categories.
Freedom Fund Dinner proceeds are used to fund scholarships for young scholars, underwrite Martin Luther King Day and Juneteenth programming, and support other organizational activities throughout the year.
Tickets are $50 and can be purchased by contacting Freedom Fund Committee Co-Chair Richard Hayes at 712-258-6344.
