Best-selling author, national television personality and parenting expert Judge Glenda Hatchett will highlight The Fourth Annual Blue Moon Affair, hosted by the Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area. The “blue tie” affair is Friday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m. at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center.
“Our Blue Moon Affair benefits the agency’s Youth Empowerment Center (YEC), a program which provides valuable, life enriching activities for youth ages seven to 17,” said Tim Donnellan, President & CEO of the Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area. “Sustaining this program is especially critical today, as resources dwindle and needs continue to arise. The Center continues to play a vital role in ensuring the well-being of our young people in this community.”
As chief presiding judge of one of the largest juvenile court systems in the country, Judge Hatchett has gained a front-row perspective on today’s hot-button social issues. Along with presiding over the syndicated television show “Judge Hatchett,” she founded “Parent Power Now,” the premiere online parenting network. This web site is a guidepost on what we can do to be successful, both at home and at work, in these uncertain times.
Judge Hatchett is the author of national best-seller “Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say” and her latest book, “Dare to Take Charge.” Her message in “Dare to Take Charge” can be distilled into two words, “Dare Yourself.” Whatever obstacles or fears one faces, Judge Hatchett implores readers to write their own story. She uses real-life stories from the courtroom and her personal life to help readers find their true gifts and be true to themselves.
The Blue Moon Affair also includes a cocktail hour, silent auction, dinner, musical entertainment and a presentation from the Youth Empowerment Center. As a “blue tie” event, guests are encouraged to wear a blue dress, suit, tie, and/or accessories.
Tickets are $60 per person, or a table for eight for $480. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit, e-mail or call (937) 341-5000 ext. 153.
