Cafe Mocha Celebrates Phenomenal Women at the historic Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center in Harlem

WBLS recently hosted its first ever “Café Mocha Brunch” at the historic Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center in Harlem. Themed “Celebrating Women,” the brunch was the culminating event of a two-month initiative that paid tribute to Women’s History Month sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank. With the mission to be a ‘voice’ and unify New York City women, the private gathering of 100 WBLS listeners, tastemakers and media was a heartfelt celebration and empowering experience for event guests.
