On Saturday, June 4, 2016 Voices of the Fatherless Child, The Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper, Pitts Funeral Home, The Milwaukee Community Journal, Attorney at Law Emile Banks, and Mario Dickens Printing hosted a concert featuring national recording artist, Milwaukee’s own Jacob Latimore. The concert was held at the MATC Cooley Auditorium in downtown Milwaukee and also featured Worldwide DG, J’Mika, B. Justice, Energetic Dance Company, Allstar Dance Company, and comedian Sip Sippi. The event raised funds for the 100 White Dresses, a program which teaches young girls how to become young ladies by promoting the values of self-esteem/self-worth, reproductive health, understanding a Mother’s role, etiquette and life skills, healthy relationships skills, domestic violence and drug use/abuse education, home gardening, the basics on how to prepare cooked or baked dishes, and other skills to help empower females of all ages and races to become better individuals, better mothers, better cooks, better leaders; to understand the purpose of growing agriculture; and to embody the purpose of human contact and interaction not filtered by electronic devices and social media. Pictured at the event is national recording artist Jacob Latimore (back row with sunglasses), one of the dance troops, and a number of the young women who are currently enrolled in the 100 White Dresses program.
