Trustee Dr. Lucille O'Neal Hosts Benefit Luncheon


For eight years now, Bethune-Cookman University Trustee and alumna, Dr. Lucille O'Neal, has convened hundreds of family, friends and supporters for a benefit Faith and Fellowship Luncheon, which raises money for the Odessa Chambliss Quality of Life Fund.

The event, held May 19, 2018, at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando Florida, expands the base of support for the Fund which aids the B-CU Odessa Chambliss Center for Health Equity and nursing education. Hosted by author and media personality Willie Moore, Jr., guests were treated to ministry in music and song by saxophonist Troy Harris and Dove and Stellar Award winner, Dottie Peoples.

The Odessa Chambliss Center was named for Dr. O'Neal's mother, a nurse, who devoted many years of service to her chosen profession. The Center's mission is to facilitate and enable all people to attain their full health potential and to ensure that no one is disadvantaged from achieving their potential because of their race, ethnicity, gender or social position.
