5th annual Savannah Sisterhood Symposium to benefit Blessings in a Bookbag


SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Organizers are gearing up for Sunday’s 5th annual Savannah Sisterhood Symposium.

This year offers a mimosa brunch, with motivational speakers and an award ceremony. The event will honor six leaders who have gone above and beyond to serve their community.

Tickets are still on sale, benefitting Blessings in a Bookbag, a local nonprofit fighting food insecurity.

“This brunch is not just for ladies, it’s for fellas as well,” but we have amazing men and women in our city that are doing amazing things,” founder of Blessings in a Bookbag, Mahogany Bowers, said.

“We all know Monday through Friday kids eat at school, but on the weekends that need is still there,” she continued. “For over 10 years, Blessings in a Bookbag has been here to help fill that hunger gap in here in the city of Savannah.”

For the fifth year, Blessings in a Bookbag is handing out Stride Awards.

“These stride awards are for the amazing people who are making strides in our community that we don’t typically get to see all the time,” Bowers told WSAV NOW.

The brunch is set for Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Staybridge Suites (1 Clyde E Martin Drive).

WSAV’s own Kim Gusby will be your host for the event.
