Barbara’s daughter Stefani Allen (Truman 1999) was a scholarship recipient when she enrolled as a student in Manhattan College (Class of 2003) for marketing. “Now she wants to give back,” said Barbara.
Stef has joined the team along with Darryl Curtis, Ray Osbourne and Mussezt: the Poet. They plan the African American Festival and other fund raisers, such as bowling parties, coin tosses and this year’s inaugural “Dine and Poetry” event with hors d’oeuvres, “spoken word poetry”, a comedian and additional entertainment to be held at GBH Beauty Salon on Mill Street on Friday, August 11 from 9 to 11 p.m. Charitable donation is $10.
