H.O.P.E. Inaugural Youth Ball

On Saturday, January 17, 2009, J Star Productions, in association with CODE Blue: Reviving a Generation, will be hosting the H.O.P.E. (Honoring Our President Elect) Inaugural Youth Ball. The event will be held at the Trinity Center on the beautiful campus of Trinity University just minutes from Capital Hill in Washington, DC. We will be celebrating the swearing in of President-Elect Barack Obama as this nation’s 44th president. Net proceeds of the event will be donated to assist the National Network for Youth, Washington, D.C., in their mission to end the plight of homelessness among our nation’s youth.

This very well may be the first ever family-friendly inaugural ball designed to allow young people to also share in the festivities of an incoming president. The event will inspire youth to follow our new President’s example of courage and persistence. From his mother’s 4:30 a.m. study sessions in grade school, to his numerous examples of service and sacrifice, President-elect Obama is an inspiration to young and old alike. This will prove to be a life changing moment in the lives of many youth to strive for excellence in achievement. The event will combine the elegance of a formal affair with the fun of souvenir photographs, special guest appearances, and much more.

For more information about the event please contact Mrs. Michelle Craft at www.hopeinauguralball.com or (301)925-8255. We look forward to hearing from you on behalf of our next generation.
