THE GEMZ 2013 Annual Mother/Daughter Empowerment Day.

Annual Mother/Daughter Breakfast. Theme: A Gift From Above (Tiffany Inspired).

On Sat. May 5th, The GEMZ held it's second Annual Mother/Daughter Breakfast. Theme: A Gift From Above (Tiffany Inspired). It was a beautiful morning. Reflecting back, I can truly say the vision for the event was realized. God is awesome. The morning started with about 102 total guests taking mother/daughter portraits by our professional photographer Yinka Aj from New York, before everyone started piling in...looking forward to an awesome morning. Special thanks to all our donors and sponsors who made this event a success. Thanks to our MC, Seyi Hopewell, Guest speaker, Janice Mcmilian and all our Volunteers and GEMZ Staff. 

Back to School Spa Day 2014!

The GEMZ held its Back to School Spa Pampering session on Sat. Aug 4th. The girls had an awesome time as they were pampered with mini facials, hands and feet treatment, mini massages by a professional massage therapist. The morning started with an opening prayer thanking God for allowing them to see the beginning of a new school year, then to a cocktail hr..well not quite an hour..to socializing, to setting and sharing their goals for the new school year. We also encouraged them to meditate on how bright they will like their future to be and how it all starts from decisions they make today. They were reminded of how precious and valuable their lives are and how they should treat themselves with such value. The room was scented with candles, aromatherapy oils, lots of spa related giveways through raffle drawings. It was a well spent morning. Thanks to all our volunteers who made this day a special day, who made our GEMZ truly feel beautiful and pampered! Watch out world...They are ready to make great things happen.).)
