A message from Ms. Wheelchair Arkansas:
Ms. Wheelchair Arkansas, a member of Ms. Wheelchair America, Inc., an organization that empowers women of achievement through leadership, educations and advocacy. MWA will have its annual competition and crownings on Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th at the LR Marriott on the River! Seating is available and we would love to have you join us.
Friday March 16th at 6:30 p.m. we will have our very first Semi-Formal/Sunday Best Fundraising Dinner with all proceeds going to the Ms. Wheelchair Arkansas program and its outreaches across the state. The dinner is for adults only and is FREE of charge. However, we will humbly be asking for donations. We operate solely on donations received from organizations and individuals such as yourselves and couldn’t make this happen without you! At 7 pm our women with wheels will take the stage and introduce themselves, as well as let you know what they will be working to change across Arkansas and beyond, should they be crowned Ms. Wheelchair Arkansas 2018. We will also hear from some of our teens with wheels. It’s good to realize that they are teenagers, just like all of the others. They simply get around differently with cooler accessories! The night will close with Carissa Lynne, Jr. Miss Wheelchair Arkansas, crowning ‘Lil Miss Wheelchair Arkansas 2018 and an amazing 80s themed dance party on the top floor of the LR Marriott!
Saturday, March 17th's festivities will begin at 2 pm with seating available for all. We would love for you to join us as Tiffany Allen, Ms. Wheelchair Arkansas 2017 crowns our new title holder. She will be an up and coming leader in her community who is ready to educate and then advocate those around her about all persons with disabilities. Together we can bridge the gap between the walking and rolling worlds. Won’t you join us! To reserve your seat at the fundraising dinner, please contact Pamela Garner, State Coordinator, via email at 501-266-3738 OR via her cell phone at 501-266-3738. Reservations must be made no later than 5 pm on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
