First Ladies Luncheon

First Ladies of distinction

The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington honored four women for community service, including BET President Debra Lee, Olympic Gold Medalist Dominique Dawes, Adams National Bank executive Kathleen Walsh Carr, author and community leader Monique Greenwood and the YMCA’s Janice Williams at a luncheon at the Omni Shoreham on September 9.

Debra Lee spoke fondly of growing up in the South and had high praise for the YMCA’s many programs. She also spoke frankly of the emotional week in New Orleans, pointing out that it had adversely aff ected African Americans. “No one wants to draw racial distinctions, but when you see the pictures…,” Lee said.
