NEW YORK – December 7, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation (RFLF), one of the oldest African American and Asian private foundations in the world, is pleased to announce a milestone $5 million grant to the Barack Obama Foundation (https://www.obama.org) to support their mission to inspire, empower, and connect the next generation of leaders.

The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation’s grant will go toward supporting the Obama Foundation’s general operations and impact work, including support for the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago, and other national and global programs like the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, which addresses persistent opportunity gaps boys and young men of color face in society and the workforce, and the Girls Opportunity Alliance, an international initiative that seeks to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, enabling them to achieve their full potential and transform their families, communities, and countries.

“It is an honor to contribute to President Obama’s ongoing work to educate and empower young people to become leaders in their communities and around the world,” said Loida Lewis, Chair of The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation and widow to the late entrepreneur Reginald Lewis. “I know President Obama attended a speech Mr. Lewis gave at Harvard Law School while the President was there studying for his law degree. Both Mr. Lewis and the President show how education helps exceptional people break barriers and accomplish wonderful things, and I know, if he was still here, Mr. Lewis would be proud to help President Obama carry his work and legacy forward.” 

“We are incredibly grateful for the generous support from The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation. It’s through vital partnerships like this that we are able to build sustainable programming at the Obama Foundation centered around supporting boys and young men of color and girls all over the world through education,” said Obama Foundation CEO Valerie Jarrett.

In partnership with the Obama Foundation, a room at the future Obama Presidential Center will be named in memory of Mr. Lewis, with the hope of continuing to preserve his ongoing legacy and inspire others for years to come. Mr. Lewis, a pioneering financier, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, has been selected by President Obama as an honoree alongside other influential figures “on whose shoulders we stand” and whose significant contributions to society advanced justice and equality in America. 

The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation and the Obama Foundation are excited to continue working together in the pursuit of education, cultural enrichment, and positive change.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – December 7, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

With the premiere of the fifth annual NY Cat Film Festival sponsored by cat product brand Dr. Elsey’s, the event has announced filmmaker Kim Best as the winner of the Gina Zaro Visionary Award.

Inspired by Gina Zaro, Dr. Elsey’s loyal employee of many years, Tracie Hotchner explains that this award has been created to keep inspiring filmmakers and their love for cats. “I created the Gina Zaro Visionary Award for Kim Best,” Hotchner stated. “[It was] named in honor of the woman who inspired the festival itself and bestowed on Kim because her work embodies everything this festival is about: finding joy and humor in our relationship with cats and celebrating all the ways kitty cats touch our lives.”

With her films making it into the top selections for the festival for the past five years, Hotchner decided that this was the perfect way to recognize both an incredible filmmaker, Kim Best, and a colleague who worked above and beyond to get the festival off of the ground, Gina Zaro.

As the founding sponsor, Dr. Elsey’s has made it a mission to donate a portion of the festival’s ticket sales to a non-profit pet organization in the area. As stated on the festival’s website, the festival is meant to “shine the spotlight on these magnificent creatures and the humans devoted to them.”

Author Simone Quynn’s New Book, ‘Changing the Phoenix: Richard and Mallory,’ is a Captivating Romance Novel About 2 Lovers Who Have to Fight Against the Odds

Recent release “Changing the Phoenix: Richard and Mallory” by Newman Springs Publishing author Simone Quynn follows Mallory and Richard as they overcome difficult obstacles to find their way to each other.

NEW YORK – December 7, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Simone Quynn has completed her new book, “Changing the Phoenix: Richard and Mallory”: a gripping and potent romance novel about two individuals who find their way to each other against all odds. 

After discovering her daughter’s abusive relationship, Jenna packs her daughter off into the world. Mallory needs to start over. She finds a job as an aspiring model for a well-established magazine. While in training, she runs into the magazine’s silent owner, Richard, a man also looking for a new start. Can Mallory handle the demands of both her new job and this enigmatic gentleman?

Richard’s been looking for a change. After a long business trip, all he wanted was to relax at his cabin—alone. However, a detour to a party was now threatening to disrupt everything he’d built—Mallory. This woman made him want things he’d forbidden himself to want. His past haunted him, but this woman made his future seem much brighter.

Author Simone Quynn begins her work, writing, “Richard was tired from his long flight. He’d been out of the country for several weeks and wasn’t ready for any parties, yet here he was, sitting alone at a party he did not want to be at. He was here alone by choice. The women he used for entertainment now bored him. He needed another change. Maybe he was just tired of the games, and it was time for something more long-term.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Simone Quynn’s compelling narrative invites readers to go on this romantic journey with Richard and Mallory. 

Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase “Changing the Phoenix: Richard and Mallory” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
