I first met Kwanza Fisher when she presented her 60 second pitch in front of a large audience of professionals, entrepreneurs, political and White House officials at the Atlanta Urban Entrepreneurship Forum this summer. Her idea was amazing and our entire row rooted for her in applauds to win mentorship and $10,000 for her business from the 100 Urban Entrepreneurs. We’ve continued to connect and randomly run into one another at events in the city. I’m so excited for her as she prepares for what will be an amazing 2012. Please join us for the Mathematically Cultured: Neighborhood Mathematica Fall 2011 Fundraiser on December 1, 2011.
Neighborhood Mathematica is a supplemental math education program for students in grades 1-8, and culminates in a competition where students represent their neighborhoods. This semester, the competition will be taking place at the Georgia World Congress Center on December 10, and will offer the community a fun-filled event with healthy competition, live performances, food, and prizes with free admission for students and parents. Special guests will include WSBTV’s Craig Lucie as an emcee and Amei Renee as one of the featured musical artists.
The Mathematically Cultured: Neighborhood Mathematica Fall 2011 Fundraiser will take place at WineStyles on 3752 Cascade Road Atlanta, GA 30331, from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Come out for a night of networking, wine, hors d’ouevres, and discussion on how Atlanta can help create a culture of education in communities. Featured speakers include Councilmember Kwanza Hall of City of Atlanta District 2 and John Gilman, Vice President of Business Development at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Other speakers will include members of the academic and public education communities.
Cheers to Education and Success!
