Golden Girls take leadership roles/JUN02
Golden Girls Give Back
Eldece Clarke-Lewis, Pauline Davis-Thompson, Sevatheda Fynes, Chandra Sturrup and Debbie Ferguson, better known as "The Golden Girls", have taken their leadership roles to another level.
The girls have formed and registered The Golden Girls Foundation, along with resident entrepreneur, Peter Nygård.
Clarke-Lewis, the foundation’s first president, explained the foundation is committed to help with the development of youth and sports.
This assistance will be provided in the form of guidance, coaching and financial support. Their first contribution was made this week to Special Olympics Bahamas, a favorite association of the Olympics and World Championships relay gold medalists.
The foundation pledges continued assistance to youth organizations and sports development programs in the community, as the girls can all attest to the valuable role these groups play in producing contributing adults.
