Published April 1, 2011

On Saturday, April 30th, The San Fernando Valley Chapter of The Links, Inc. will honor businessman and humanitarian, Danny Bakewell. This celebration will take place at the Sheraton Universal Hotel with cocktail hour beginning at 11am.  At high noon, The Links will commence this recognition with humble hearts and high spirits.  For more than three decades, Bakewell was at the helm of the Brotherhood Crusade. Due to his bold leadership and guidance, the organization has grown considerably and the Brotherhood Crusade is now a nationally recognized civil rights advocate organization providing more than sixty million dollars to community programs and services throughout Southern California. These are just a few among many significant contributions that Danny Bakewell has made to and for the African-American community throughout southern California.

For over 37 years, The San Fernando Links have served African-Americans in the Valley by providing college scholarships, school supplies, educational programs, care and support for senior citizens, and over 1200 hours annually of hands on community service. Through their signature Top Hat Award Luncheon, The San Fernando Valley Links have recognized trailblazers within the African-American community for over 20 years.

Co-Chairs Sissy Alexander and Sonya Vaughn, along with the entire chapter of The San Fernando Valley Links count it their honor and privilege to recognize Mr. Bakewell, this pillar of excellence and a shining example of exceptional leadership.
