Johnson Price Sprinkle PA (JPS) a leading accounting firm in Western North Carolina, is a proud bronze sponsor of the 12th Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon held May 24, 2016 in Asheville, NC.
One thousand women heard Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space, provide an inspiring talk encouraging all to believe in themselves and help others. Dr. Jemison was on the 1992 Space Shuttle Endeavour mission in which she performed material and life science as well as human adaptation experiments.
During the luncheon, The Community Foundation of WNC’s Women for Women announced a total of $254,182 in grants to Asheville-Buncombe Community Christian Ministry (ABCCM), Our Voice, Reach of Macon County and Wheels 4 Hope.
JPS congratulates The Community Foundation of WNC, Women for Women, and all the 2016 Grantees. Thanks for making Western North Carolina Be Greater!
