Atlanta’s 2012 Rising Star Recipient Tamiko Lowry Continues to Empower Victims to Become Survivors
On December 1, 2012, a diverse and philanthropic group of Atlanta media, business professionals, and social gatherers will assemble to pledge their generosity and ongoing support to a worthy cause at the 2012 Winter White Affair
ATLANTA, GA (November 2012) On December 1, 2012, a diverse and philanthropic group of Atlanta media, business professionals, and social gatherers will assemble to pledge their generosity and ongoing support to a worthy cause at the 2012 Winter White Affair – a benefit event that supports The Still Standing Foundation’s Adopt-A-Family holiday program.
Known for her vibrant personality and passionate commitment to domestic abuse awareness and survivors’ development, Tamiko Lowry—founder of the rapidly growing non-profit organization, The Still Standing Foundation— has increased her efforts to affect change in the lives of women and families who have become displaced due to abuse by providing food, clothes, and other resources needed for survival.
“I am delighted to add to the rising spirit of social responsibility that should characterize our country and culture now more than ever,” said Lowry. “My purpose is clear and my spirit is strong. The feeling of self-worth and liberation from my own chains that I experienced propels me to forge ahead to be the key that unlock others.”
It is this unrelenting vision that awarded Lowry the prestigious 2012 Celebration of Gospel Rising Star Award in September 2012 over a group of other well-known and well-deserving nominees. The award is given to individuals who have shown considerable strides in community involvement and improvement.
Riding the waves of her vastly successful and generously sponsored Still Standing and Stepping Out event that saw survivors of abuse ripping the runway in an unprecedented fashion show, Lowry has planned the Winter White Affair to be yet another night to remember as the event will feature a collage of entertainment that will include special guest artists, a deejay, a silent auction, and a mini fashion showcase of Atlanta’s best designers.
With Lowry’s unbridled creativity and unlimited faith, she hopes to bring a new dimension to philanthropy and given purpose.
