The legacy of the Women of Color Cultural Foundation (WOCCF) was on display for their annual black tie event recognizing individuals who have made significant contributions to health and safety in Northeast Florida.
Held inside the Hyatt Regency Southbank, the event theme was ‘Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue for all the First Responders Do.’ The program honored first responders on the First Coast for their heroic duties, unwavering commitment, and tireless sacrifice every day in serving our communities. Hundreds of supporters were in attendance to hear mistress of ceremony Dawn Lopez speak truth to power on how gun safety has become the nation’s number one priority. The purpose of the Foundation is to address the unmet needs of people of color, to eliminate disparities in health, education and economic development related issues. Yearly WOCCF collaborates with community partners to address disparities in health, coordinating summits/workshops/luncheons scholarships and charity distributions.
