Southfield, Michigan: April 25, 2010— Join Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. to empower teens by attending the 2nd Annual "Real Women Like Us - Redefining Our Beauty" Spring Fashions in the Garden and Luncheon on Sunday, April 25, 2010 from 1:30 – 6:30 pm. Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. is supporting Alternatives for Girls to help them raise much-needed resources to continue their mission. The economic crisis in the Detroit Metropolitan area has resulted in the loss of funding for Alternatives for Girls, which has led to reductions in staff and operating budgets.
Alternatives For Girls is a Detroit-based nonprofit serving homeless and high-risk girls and young women. Since 1987, Alternatives for Girls has provided critical services to the girls and young women they serve, including safe shelter, street outreach and educational support, vocational guidance, mentoring, prevention activities, and counseling. The prevention programs at Alternatives For Girls organization empower teens and girls, and have a 100% success rate of all participating girls graduating high school, and going on to college. They need more help to continue their mission.
This event will be held at the Shriners Silver Garden, 24350 Southfield Road, Southfield, MI. The theme for the Real Women Like Us - Redefining Our Beauty event is Women of Wisdom: Reaching Back for Our Daughters, which will include the phenomenal Dr. Marilyn French Hubbard, Silvia Clark, Msn. Rosalind Charles, and Judy Muhn. Each of these women will share their wisdom and knowledge gained from their journey to enrich other’s lives, and provide valuable information to help us teach our daughters to become women of character and excellence. Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. and Alternatives For Girls support the development of girls so they continue to have strong leadership in their families and communities.
A spectacular lunch will be provided, along with vendors, entertainment and the fabulous fashion show featuring special designs by Cedrick “Cedi” Johnson who is celebrating 25 years of fashion designs in the Detroit area. You will also be entertained by the sounds of Detroit's own Jazz Extraordinaire, Duane Parham, a saxophonist and Motown Artist, Remonda Sheffield, soloist, and Poetess, Ber-henda Williams.
Life Coach, Kimle Mitchell produces a top-notch affair. The Real Women Like Us event offered life-changing information, wonderful food, endless networking opportunities and exciting entertainment. The speakers gave powerful presentations leaving the women energized and inspired. It is definitely an event I think all women should experience. Whether you're going through transition or want to enjoy an uplifting afternoon in the company of other great women...this is the event to attend! …Reene' Ferguson
I really enjoyed the Real Women Like Us Fashion Show Luncheon. It was inspiring, informative and beautiful. I had a very good time. Although I went to the event alone, everyone was so friendly that I was able to enjoy the company of the members of my table. I also ran into several people that I knew or had met before at the vendor booths. I really look forward to going again this year…..Manola Webster
A special recognition will be presented to the CEO of Alternatives For Girls, Amanda L. Good, for her exceptional leadership in teaching our daughters how to transition into womanhood. It is the belief of Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. that a donation of time and money today is a small price to pay to help Alternatives For Girls continue the awesome work of empowering teens and young women with leadership and moral character so they grow into womanhood able to lead our families and communities.

About Alternatives For Girls
The goal of Alternatives For Girls is to empower the girls and young women we serve to make positive choices. Our mission is to help homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation, and help them to explore an access the support, resources and opportunities necessary to be safe, to grow strong and to make positive choices in their lives.
The inspiration for Alternatives For Girls came in 1985 when a group of southwest Detroit residents, clergy and business people began to share concerns about the alarming increase in drug use, homelessness, prostitution and street activity among girls and young women. Originally a small, volunteer-run program, operating a five-bed emergency shelter in a neighborhood church, Alternatives For Girls has evolved into a multi-service agency with over 50 employees. It is housed in a two-story brick building constructed in 2002 following the successful completion of a $4.5-million capital campaign

About Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S.
Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. is an organization that offers life coaching and tools designed to empower women in their everyday life. Our mission is to create a more powerful you, by reminding you of the essence you are simply by being a woman.
We encourage women to join together in a Sisterhood, so as we share our stories and lessons with each other in a loving way, it becomes possible to open ourselves to new resources to create new experiences. When we travel through our “dark night of the soul” inside of the Sisterhood, we can entrust our Sisterhood to hold a sacred space for us, until we emerge triumphantly from our own darkness into the new essence we are. We learn to share in the darkness, and to share in the triumphs and victories.
All change is based on personal commitment to ourselves. The theme for Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. is Self- Improvement Simply Takes Education, Redevelopment, and Sincerity, and through this process of education and redevelopment, you can transform your whole being. Positive S.I.S.T.E.R.S. offers a forum for women to take a journey of self-discovery with the support of a Sisterhood, so we all share in the re-birth of our lives.
