The Annual Fellowman Willie J. Brown Scholarship Jazz Luncheon
On Sunday, June 8, 2008, the New Jersey Graduate Chapter of Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc. held its Ninth Annual Scholarship Jazz Luncheon in honor of one of its former chapter members, the late Fellowman Willie J. Brown. Since June 4, 2000, the New Jersey Graduate Chapter has awarded 29 scholarships totaling $61,000. The music, the food, and the humble expressions of gratitude from the scholarship recipients made this event truly worthwhile.
At this year’s luncheon, it was a real pleasure for the New Jersey Graduate Chapter to have as its keynote speaker one of our own, Fellowman Harold S. Reed, Jr. Reed’s oratory was truly informative, enlightening, and uplifting, not only to the scholarship recipients, but also to the assembled guests. The New Jersey Graduate Chapter is looking forward to hosting the Annual Fellowman Willie J. Brown Scholarship Jazz Luncheon next year, which will mark a decade of community service in the name of Groove Phi Groove.
