As part of their ongoing awards series, Café Mocha Radio will hold their next Salute Her: Superwomen Making a Difference Awards in Washington, DC on August 25, 2016 as part of the Ubiquitous Beauty Hair Health Expo. The ceremony will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center at 11am.
The syndicated radio show—hosted by Loni Love (“The Real”), rapper Yo Yo and radio veteran Angelique Perrin—will recognize another group of dynamic Black and Latino women making contributions within their communities and breaking down barriers with their businesses.
This year’s honorees include motivational speaker Iyanla Vanzant (Spirit Award); celebrity hairstylist Kim Kimble (Woman of Style); Kevin Durant’s mother Wanda Durant (Champion of Change); philanthropist Cora Masters Barry (Champion of Children); spa owner Maisie Dunbar (Bridging the Gap); Howard University’s Carol Dudley (Game Changer); natural eating advocate Jerri Evans (Toyota Green Award); Fox 5 DC’s Micheline Bowman (Media Innovator); and businesswoman Carla Reid (Legacy Business).
WHUR 96.3FM’s Mo Ivory of “Afternoons with Tony, Mo & George” will help co-host the event alongside the Café Mocha hosts.
The goal of Salute Her is to recognize a diverse group of women who share a common commitment to make a positive contribution that strengthen the multicultural community.
“Our Salute Her celebrations are extraordinary because we bring cultures together to network and recognize incredible black and brown women who are making a real difference in their communities. Our hope is that our honorees’ stories will inspire our attendees to continue our mission and pay it forward,” said Café Mocha founder and executive producer Sheila Eldridge.
