Meet Will Smith and Celebrate Black History Month! - Weekly Wings

Perhaps you celebrated as the Green Bay Packers were “crowned” winners this past Sunday night at NFL’s Super Bowl XLV, or perhaps you are celebrating my 40th on February 8th (no pressure). February gives us many reasons to celebrate especially because it is Black History Month and although I’d like to keep the birthday candles burning, Black History Month takes precedence. According to Wikipedia, it has been celebrated annually in February since 1976 in the US and Canada and in the United Kingdom in the month of October. Black History Month actually started as Negro History Week in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson. The goal is to educate others about African-Americans' cultural backgrounds and reputable achievements.  Karyn Parsons, Butterfly member and also known as Hilary Banks, Will Smith’s snooty cousin on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, continues that very mission today through her Sweet Blackberry organization.  Sweet Blackberry is a non-profit foundation whose mission is to educate children about unsung black heroes.  In honor of Black History Month, Karyn and her foundation, Butterfly PROUDLY joins forces to unveil our live charity auction for the chance to meet Will Smith while you dine with the cast of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air in Los Angeles, to benefit Sweet Blackberry!

The highest bidder will win:

  • Meet & Greet for you and a guest with Will Smith
  • A Dining Experience for you and a guest with Karyn Parsons, Tatyana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro and James Avery at a trendy LA restaurant
  • Gift from Pit Bull Energy Drink (Retail Value: $500); Pit Bull - Attitude in can. www.hiphopbev.com
  • Gift Bag from MyWorkButterfly.com
  • Moms’ 3-Hour Workweek;
