United Way’s Sole Sisters luncheon to feature Susan Fales-Hill

More than 350 Sole Sisters and other United Way supporters will gather for a morning of shopping for a good cause and a gourmet lunch on Thursday, April 24 at Greenwich Country Club.

The Greenwich United Way Sole Sister’s Annual Spring Luncheon and Fashion Accessories Boutique, is one of the organization’s most anticipated events. The Boutique will showcase 16 vendors selling stylish merchandise ranging from handcrafted items to house and barn portraits, handbags, accessories, jewelry and scarves.

The afternoon’s keynote speaker is the award-winning author, television producer, and arts and education advocate Susan Fales-Hill. Ms. Fales-Hill studied history and literature at Harvard, graduating with honors in 1985. She began her career writing scripts for The Cosby Show, later becoming a story editor then co-executive producer and head writer for its award-winning spin-off A Different World.

She also held executive positions with numerous other TV series throughout the 1990s.

In her critically acclaimed memoir, Always Wear Joy, she writes about her unique upbringing as the child of Haitian-American Broadway star Josephine Premice and Mayflower descendant Timothy Fales. At the luncheon, she will be presenting her latest book, titled Imperfect Bliss. She has written more numerous magazine publications, and has served on the boards of the Studio Museum of Harlem and the American Ballet Theatre.

This year’s Sole Sisters Luncheon is co-chaired by Lisa Lori and Tory Thorman. Chairs for the event also include Maxine Armstrong, Keri Cameron and Susan Weis. Luncheon tickets and sponsorship information, including Patron and Underwriting opportunities, are now available at Unitedsolesisters.org.
