Epsilon Chapter of Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. will host its 18th Annual “Unsung Heroes Luncheon” on Saturday, April 6th at 12:00 noon at the Crowne Plaza, Market Center, 7050 North Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, Texas. This year’s theme is, “Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. – Honoring Those Who Serve With Faith, Hope, Love and Courage.”
The guest speaker will be Reverend Lelious A. Johnson, pastor of St. Paul Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for scholarships for high school graduates and honor men and women who have worked diligently in their respective communities, giving of their time, talents, and gifts. Eta Phi beta Sorority Inc. was organized to be of service “not for ourselves, but for others.” We continue to uphold the principles and ideals set forth in 1942 when this noble organization was started.
Eta Phi beta Sorority, Inc. continues its legacy of providing services to citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities, business and professional women, and children, as well as increasing awareness of issues like the prevention of domestic violence and breast cancer awareness.
