Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon Postponement 

A notice from the Rankin/ Mon Valley/ Pittsburgh Section of NCNW, Inc. Legacy Luncheon Committee:

The safety and security of our members and guests is our highest priority. Although currently there are no reported cases of the coronavirus in Allegheny County, in light of Governor Wolf’s recommendation to cancel or postpone events with 250 or more participants, we have decided to reschedule the Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon which was to be held March 21st at the Doubletree Hotel in Monroeville.

We recommend you keep your ticket in a secure location. All tickets will be honored when our event is rescheduled. The date has yet to be determined. As we gain more information we will reach out to you with the new date.


Rankin Mon Valley Pittsburgh Section

The Rankin/Mon Valley/Pittsburgh Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) was chartered in 2010 . . . inspired by the legendary Dr. Dorothy I. Height, who grew up in the Rankin area where her activism began.  Throughout the history of this Section, we have strived to carry out her legacy through such activities as turkey basket giveaways to qualified families duriing the holiday season, honoring our elder role models, fighting for justice and equality, advocating for our African American families and communities, promoting youth leadership, as well as various other activities.  Our health emphasis at this time is heart health awareness. 

We could absolutely use your assistance and support as we attempt to further the vision of the esteemed educator Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded NCNW in 1935, then passed the torch on to Dr. Dorothy I. Height, who presided over the organization for forty years.  Remember . . . we are stronger when we stand together!  You may call 412-953-9583, if you desire to become involved.
