“It was very exciting to see so many of my sorority sisters attend the Area V Workshop but most importantly promoting prematurity awareness ,” said Curry “and donating to the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Educational Baby Shower to help give back to expectant mothers in our community.”
he event began at 8 a.m. and ended around 5 p.m. The event was a closed session, allowing only the members of the sorority and its auxiliary groups to attend.
