New Bedford NAACP 100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
ANNOUNCING 100TH ANNIVERSARY GALA
Dear NAACP New Bedford Branch Member:
The New Bedford Branch of the NAACP is pleased to announce the celebration of its 100th Anniversary! On December 10, 1917, the National Board of the NAACP chartered the New Bedford Branch who joined the long history of struggle for civil rights and social justice across the nation. To commemorate its centennial, the New Bedford NAACP Branch will hold a 100th Anniversary Gala on (Saturday) December 16, 2017 at White’s of Westport, located at 66 State Road in Westport, Massachusetts. The keynote speaker for this event will be Ms. Clayola Brown, President of the A. Philip Randolph Institute in Washington D.C. and former National NAACP Board Member. The event will feature a cocktail hour, dinner, music and dancing, an awards presentation, and a historical review of the New Bedford NAACP Branch. The occasion promises to be a memorable event to mark the anniversary of the chartering of a branch of the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.
As a member, we trust that you are excited about this 100th Anniversary celebration and will support the festivities with your attendance. Tickets for this semi-formal event are $75.00 each and may be purchased by contacting Mr. Peter Silva via e-mail at email@example.com.
We invite you to join us in celebrating this milestone occasion. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend the New Bedford NAACP Branch’s 100th Anniversary Gala. We look forward to seeing you!

This year, the New Bedford Branch of the NAACP is celebrating its 100 year anniversary. To commemorate this centennial anniversary, the New Bedford NAACP will hold an Anniversary Gala on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at White’s of Westport from 6:00pm until 10:00pm. The keynote speaker for this event will be Ms. Clayola Brown, President of the A. Phillip Randolph Institute in Washington, D.C. and former National Board Member of the NAACP. The Gala will include a dinner, entertainment, and a historical presentation of the branch’s history.
Whether you are a corporate sponsor, a continuing supporter, or first-time advertiser, join us in this celebration by placing an advertisement in our program brochure. We count on area businesses to advertise in our program brochure as a way to show their support for the Branch’s steadfast efforts in fighting discrimination and racial injustice in areas such as employment, housing, education, and public accommodations.
The program brochure will be an 8.5 x 11 inch brochure featuring advertisements from local businesses, corporations, family members, the evening’s agenda, and a historical review of the New Bedford NAACP’s 100 years of advocacy for racial justice. The program brochure will be a commemorative keepsake. As a corporate sponsor, your sponsorship will aid in underwriting the expenses for the event. The program brochure will also be an excellent resource to promote your business and for individuals to congratulate or memorialize friends and family members.
All advertisement commitment forms, payment and artwork must be received by Saturday, November 25, 2017. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity. Please consult with a tax professional for the deductibility of your charitable donation.
