Stacie Turner is not just a Real Housewife of DC. The wife and mother of two is also an entrepreneur, businesswoman, founder of a charity, and now, the star of a new documentary. After years of being involved in community service, Stacie Turner decided to found a charitable organization that was near and dear to her heart. Recognizing that there are many underprivileged young women in Washington, DC without a home or the consistent support of a family, Stacie founded Extra-Ordinary Life, a DC-based program that operates within the Pursuit of Dreams Foundation. Extra-Ordinary Life works with teenage girls in foster care to develop their goals by exposing them to positive people, places, and experiences that brighten their horizons.
On Monday, November 22 at 6 p.m. at the Lincoln Theater on U Street, members of the community will get an inside look into Stacie Turner’s work in the new film Extra-Ordinary Life: Journey to South Africa. Produced by BET and filmed during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, this new documentary charts Stacie Turner’s journey in South Africa with eight foster girls and chronicles their cultural, educational, and service orientated experience during the games. The interactive event is hosted by DC Child and Family Services, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Casey Family Programs, FOX 5’s Allison Seymour, and Stacie Turner herself.
Doors for this FREE program open at 5 p.m. and the film will begin at 6 p.m. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
