Celebrate the Second Annual “Heel My Sole” Fundraiser Gala
Roschelle Woyee Scholarship Foundation host it’s 2nd Annual “Heel My Sole” Fundraiser Gala
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- I am Robynn Woyee-Kollie, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Roschelle Woyee Scholarship Foundation (RWSF). My family and I migrated from West Africa, Liberia to the United States in 2000. I currently hold a Master’s of Science Degree in Healthcare Administration.
The RWSF is a non-profit 501(C) (3) organization which was established on February 28, 2017. This Scholarship Foundation is in memory of my late sister, Roschelle T. Woyee, who was shot in the back of her head by her ex-boyfriend, her daughter’s father. This tragic event happened at the back door of our parent’s residence in 2008 in Charlotte, North Carolina. My late sister Roschelle left behind a daughter, Jada, who was only one-year-old at the time of my late sister’s untimely death. After the passing of my late sister, Jada was left to the care of my parents and I. As such, over the years, I have been able to gain a firsthand knowledge about how the various types of violence affect children in different ways. Hence, God brought the idea of the RWSF to my head in 2009 to help children such as my Niece, Jada who have lost their parent(s) due to violence. My vision of the organization was to help at-risk children, child survivors of domestic violence, and sexual abuse to achieve a brighter future. My Niece Jada and I honor the memories of Roschelle through the running of the Roschelle Woyee Scholarship Foundation.
The RWSF focuses on “providing scholarships, creating mentorship opportunities, promoting healthy relationships without abuse in the community, advocating for at-risks children, child survivors and victims of domestic partner abuse, and sexual abuse”. The overall mission of the RWSF is to: “Achieve a Brighter Future for our Children”.
Granted that our organization is still in its infant stage, the RWSF has made great efforts within the local communities. In 2017, the organization hosted its first Back to School Fundraiser in Charlotte, North Carolina. Funds (and items) raised were donated to Battered Women’s shelter. Additionally, in 2017, the RWSF awarded its first College recipient with $500.00 textbooks Scholarship at Fayetteville State University. Moreover, our organization also sponsored an Elementary School student in Fayetteville, North Carolina with school supplies for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Beyond the United States, the RWSF provides scholarships to six children in West Africa, Liberia covering the 2018-2019 academic year. Now 11, Jada honor the memories of her late mother by collecting and distributing toys to child survivors of Domestic Violence every Christmas. In 2018, all of the collected toys were donated to Caminar Latino Battered Women’s shelter in Atlanta, Georgia.
This year, the RWSF will be hosting its second annual Fundraiser Ball. Our non-profit organization will be hosting a “Heel My Sole” Fundraiser Gala Fashion Show on Saturday, May 04, 2019 from 6:00PM-12:00AM at the Samyve Cultural Center: 3146 Freedom Drive, Charlotte, North Carolina 28208.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the grand opening of our office space in West Africa, Liberia, and to continue our ongoing scholarship program in the United States and in Liberia.
