Black Tie International:
West Harlem Group Assistance, Inc., 40th Anniversary Celebration
 
West Harlem Group

WEST HARLEM GROUP ASSISTANCE TO CELEBRATE
40 YEARS OF TRANSFORMING HARLEM AT AARON DAVIS HALL
ON SEPTEMBER 22





Len Burnett, John C. Liu,
 Tamara Tunie and Gregory Generet Among the Honorees At Fundraiser Featuring Ray, Goodman and Brown

 



NEW YORK —Harlem luminaries will shine on Thursday, September 22, when West Harlem Group Assistance (WHGA), one of Harlem’s first community development corporations, celebrates its 40th anniversary at Aaron Davis Hall. Hosted by broadcaster Dyana Williams, the event celebrates WHGA’s four decades of housing development and neighborhood preservation efforts in West and Central Harlem. The fundraiser, which will include a performance by Ray, Goodman & Brown, is being sponsored by The Phipps Houses Group, BNY Mellon, Capital One Bank, Citi, Columbia University and TMA Contracting Corp.



The honorees will include Len Burnett, CEO and group publisher of Uptown Media and Vibe Lifestyle Network; NYC Comptroller John C. Liu; actress-director-philanthropist Tamara Tunie; jazz vocalist and community activist Gregory Generet; and Capital One Bank. Accepting for Capital One will be Vice President and Bank Manager Marlon March. The Rev. Dr. Calvin O. Butts III, senior pastor of Abyssinian Baptist Church and founder and chair of Abyssinian Development Corporation and Maurice Coleman, senior vice president of Bank of America, will serve as Honorary Chair and Event Chair respectively.



Since its founding in 1971, WHGA has developed more than 1,200 units of affordable housing, created approximately 325 units of home ownership opportunities and moved more than 3,000 families from transitional to permanent housing. By leveraging partnerships with the community-at-large, elected officials as well as private and public supporters, WHGA has become a leading affordable housing community development corporation (CDC).




“We could not have contributed to the metamorphosis of Harlem and positively impacted so many lives over 40 years had we not been inspired by community business people like Len Burnett; enjoyed the support of government leaders like John Liu; worked hand-in-hand with Harlem-based artist-activists like Tamara Tunie and Gregory Generet; and forged strong partnerships with committed financial institutions like Capital One,” said Donald C. Notice, Executive Director of WHGA. “And, so, we are extremely proud that they will be accepting our awards at this year’s celebration.”



The WHGA 40th Anniversary Celebration begins at 6:00 pm with a cocktail reception and silent auction and continues at 7:00 pm with dinner and an awards presentation. Tickets to the benefit start at $200. Aaron Davis Hall, City College of New York, is located at
135th Street and Convent Avenue.

For tickets or details, call 212-862-1399 or visit www.whgainc.org .

About WEST HARLEM GROUP ASSISTANCE

West Harlem Group Assistance (WHGA) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit community-based development corporation established in 1971 to revitalize the under-invested West and Central Harlem communities—then riddled with dilapidated and abandoned buildings. Ironically, as its preservation efforts have taken hold and Harlem experiences a rapid influx of new businesses and investments, WHGA’s primary function has become to quell the negative impacts of rapid gentrification on its low to moderate-income constituency, with a renewed focus on preservation of homes and businesses.
