The Purple Affair Gala
Written by gphradio on October 17, 2017
Last weekend, October 7th, The Purple Affair Gala took place in Atlanta, Georgia. The yearly gala recognizes those who have been affected by domestic violence, and honors those who are doing something to prevent/educate throughout the community about it. This event was started by best selling author and founder/executive director of @TheStillstandingfoundation Mrs. @Tamikolowrypugh Tomiko spoke about her own story of how she herself was a victim of domestic violence and how her trials birthed a new woman who would soon help heal other women/men who’ve experienced great pain through domestic violence. This is how she became known as The Empowering Diva!!
The beautiful event was hosted by @DaughterOfSoul & @AureaMcgarry.
The Purple Gala was also the official book release of The best selling book series #WoundsToWisdom volume 2 ,which our own correspondent for girl power hour / speaker Duntenia Fitts @lifeofamsfitt is a co-author of.
