Black Expo Shows Love to Charleston Promise Neighborhood

21 Mar 2011 |

The Charleston Promise Neighborhood is hard at work–and people are taking notice. Even though the community in South Carolina did not receive a planning grant from the Department of Education in 2010, they’re finding other sources of funding and ways to stay connected.

The Charleston Black Expo showcased a Charleston Promise Neighborhood booth and banner, and made the Promise Neighborhood the charitable beneficiary of the Annual Black Expo Golf Tournament–to the tune of $1500!

Members of the Charleston Promise Neighborhood presented at the Expo, and Promise Neighborhood CEO Dwayne Green has been speaking at a number of community events since.

It’s inspiring to see so much action, so keep it up, Charleston!
