Join Us for Love Lunch:

A Heartwarming Luncheon in Support of Visible Men Academy!

Dear Friends of Visible Men Academy:

I hope this note finds you well and that you have enjoyed a relaxing summer. We are delighted to be your hosts for the upcoming Love Lunch fundraising event in celebration and support of Visible Men Academy (VMA). Please mark your calendars and join us on Tuesday, October 24th at the Michael’s On East Ballroom at 11:30 am. VMA Principal Dr. Janjay Gehndyu will be our keynote speaker.

We are inspired by the outpouring of support this school, the students, and their families receive from our community and we feel blessed to be a part of the mission. VMA exists to provide students with strong academic, character, and social education in a nurturing school environment. The students, many of whom are from low-income households, receive a high-quality educational experience. The goal is to give all students, the “Suns,” an unyielding sense of control over their futures with lifelong success, personal fulfillment, and societal contribution on the horizon.

We know that a place like VMA would not exist today without that one simple word, love, and all that it embodies. We hope you can be with us on 10.24.23 and we invite you to attend and/or perhaps consider supporting the school with one of the many sponsorship opportunities available. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Naiema Frieson, VMA Board Chair, and Melissa Morsli
