Special Guests Include Judge Glenda Hatchett and Comedian Bruce Bruce
On March 22, 2011, Taffi Dollar and The Women’s Ministry at World Changers Church International in College Park, Georgia, will host their 4th Annual Ethel J. Bolton Scholarship Fundraiser Gala. The Gala will feature the #1 national best-selling author of Dare To Take Charge, Judge Glenda Hatchett, as guest speaker.
The Fundraiser is in honor of its namesake, Ethel J. Bolton, Taffi Dollar’s mother—affectionately known as "Everybody's Mama," who dedicated her entire career to the field of education. She understood how vital it is to expose young minds to information and equip them with the skills necessary to contribute to society and make their mark in this world. So she did all she could, even when her health was failing, to make sure she touched and influenced as many lives as possible.
Ethel was a motivator and an encourager, who made a profound impact on thousands upon thousands of young lives. The mission of the Ethel J. Bolton Scholarship Fund is simple: to offer college tuition assistance to outstanding high school seniors, who may not otherwise have an opportunity to go to college.
Judge Glenda Hatchett is best known for her television court show, Judge Hatchett, where she rules with an iron fist—but also with compassion for those who enter her courtroom. Judge Hatchett is respectful, stable, moderate, and able to apply the law equitably. She is also more than willing to find long-term solutions to the problems facing the parties appearing before her bench. Judge Hatchett is most proud of the troubled teens who have gone on to college or medical school, and those who have recovered from drug addictions, after appearing on her show. Judge Glenda Hatchett says, “Sometimes people need a wake-up call, an opportunity to examine the road they're heading down, in order to motivate them to change before it's too late."
In addition to the Honorable Judge Hatchett, comedian Bruce Bruce is also confirmed to appear at this most auspicious occasion. Bruce Bruce is best known for his time spent as the host of BET’s Comic View. He has also appeared in various stand-up comedy television shows and specials.
The inclusion of Bruce Bruce to this fundraising gala will bring an element of light entertainment but will ultimately bring a serious awareness to the main goal of the night by impacting the lives of young people around the world.
The Ethel J. Bolton Gala is designed to celebrate young lives and make an impact on their future. The Gala will be held at World Changers Church International, in the Fellowship Hall, from 5:30 -7:30 P.M. Tickets are $35 in advance and $50 at the door.
