Ray Lewis to Host Power52 Live “After Five” Fundraiser Event
BALTIMORE, MD — Ray Lewis and the Power52 Team will host their second annual fundraising event to promote and support the Power52 Foundation, a not-for-profit organization based in Maryland. The event will be held on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at Power Plant Live at 7:00 pm, and will feature a live auction, DJ, great networking, endless hors d’oeuvres and lots of fun. A VIP Cocktail Reception will start at 6:00pm with a limited number of ticket holders joining Ray for an hour of cocktails and conversations.
Co-Founded by Cherie Brooks, Ray Lewis, and Rob Wallace, the Power52 Foundation’s mission is to help strengthen communities and inspire people to achieve their potential through hands-on job training in the energy sector. Power52 in partnership with Living Classrooms launched their Energy Professional Training program in October 2016 bringing workforce development, resiliency, and clean energy solutions to low and medium income communities. In addition, Power52 is working with Living Classrooms to convert their community centers into resiliency hubs, offering disaster relief support to their neighboring communities.
Sharing a passion for Baltimore and the future of its youth, and in an effort to change the way the city is viewed by the outside world following the 2015 protests, Lewis, Wallace and Brooks agreed that they had the means and the responsibility to impact the community. “Power52 will not only give young people opportunities to successfully enter the workforce” notes Ray Lewis, “but it will also educate people so that they can understand the importance of energy independence.” Adds Rob Wallace, “We will train, we will place, we will provide scholarships. We will teach our students how to fish so that they can fish and in turn support their families and our community”.
