As details about Coronavirus (COVID-19) become clearer in its impact on life and wellness, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Fashion Show/Scholarship Fundraiser. We are especially cognizant of the demographics of our devoted patrons. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our guests, show participants, vendors and members.

We recognize that our time honored fashion show fundraiser is an opportunity to come together for an afternoon of fun, shopping, fabulous fashions and most importantly, awarding academic grants to deserving students, through our scholarship awards program, but safety is our priority.

We plan to increase our social media presence over the next few months. Please follow us on :

On behalf of the women of The Progressives-Harambe Inc. NFP we humbly thank you for your continued support of our scholarship fundraiser that endeavors to aid the next generation of leaders and emerging professionals to make an impact on the nation.

Please stay safe and healthy!! 

 We look forward to seeing you

Fashion Show/Scholarship Fundraiser

Melody Coleman, President

The cancellation of our Fashion Show and Luncheon fundraisers for 2020 and 2021 because of the impact of Covid-19 has severely limited our ability to award Educational Grants to high school seniors and returning college students at a time when many need it most. For this reason, we are reaching out to our Loyal supporters such as you. 

We are kicking off Spring by launching a GoFundMe campaign to support our 2021 fundraising efforts. Our goal is to raise $5,000. Please visit our GoFundMe page and support us in this effort. Click on the following link:
