On the evening of Thursday, March 31 is the annual BWFC Hoedown for Champions, featuring barbeque, country line dancing and a cake auction. Tickets for this Peachtree City event for adults (both men and women) are on sale now through March 25 for $40 each, or $70 for two. Tickets and sponsorship information and easy payment through Paypal are at www.bwfcc.org.
Hoedown for Champions benefits TEAM Alliance. TEAM Alliance was founded by Peachtree City retired pastor Jane White-Stevens in order to provide support for Kingdom Champions Academy, a Christian school serving orphans and other impoverished children in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. The mission is to give these children education, a daily meal, hope and a future. 100% of the proceeds from the Hoedown for Champions will go to Kingdom Champions Academy.
Jane White-Stevens said, “This school took kids who weren’t even getting enough food to eat, and now they get two meals a day. I can see the hope in their faces. I know this works. I saw them three years ago, and then last year. There’s a difference. There’s confidence. Their eyes sparkle. They look healthy. They have energy.”
Kingdom Champions Academy is a Christian school that follows Kenyan government curriculum standards. According to Jane White-Stevens, they study English and Swahili. Some students may speak a different language at home. Many of them share books.
“If there’s not enough money to feed the children at the school, the people who run the school go without food at home,” said Jane White-Stevens.
Hoedown for Champions Chair Sheila Rambeck said, “It’s a worthy cause to help these kids. If we don’t help them, who will? I’m happy to take care of kids overseas. We want to do things here in the county, but we also live in the world. They need a good education and a good Christian background.”
What does Rambeck want locals to know about Hoedown for Champions “Any adult is welcome. Even though we are the Business Women of Fayette and Coweta, women, bring your husbands and boyfriends. The more the merrier,” said Rambeck, a bankruptcy attorney with RambeckLaw.
One of the best ways to support Hoedown for Champions is sponsorship. Honor Roll Sponsors of Hoedown for Champions includes Sheila Rambeck, RambeckLaw; Ellie White-Stevens, Marketing Guru; Denise Hanson, Preserve Your Florals, Brittney Mitchell, Britt Brat Bakes; Nicole Bolinger, Dorothy Nicole Photography; Senoia Optimist Club; and Serenity Hospice.
The BWFC’s mission is to give back for a better community. “We invite women in business to join our organization, but we invite the whole community to be a part of Hoedown for Champions. We can’t make a difference without you!” said Ellie White-Stevens, Marketing Guru and Jane White- Stevens’ daughter.
The Business Women of Fayette and Coweta chose TEAM Alliance as one of three causes they will support this year. Businesswomen wanting to be added to the BWFC list for future meetings and networking events can email Sheila@rambecklaw.com
