PRWEB - Evangelist Denise Matthews (formerly Vanity of Vanity 6 with Prince) to Speak at A Positive Force LDC's African Fashion Show, Youth Benefit and Gospel Extravaganza on December 5, 2005 at CSUS University, Sacramento Grand Ballroom. Debbie Richardson, Executive Director for A Positive Force Leadership Dev. Corp., a nonprofit organization that provides youth scholarships and administrative consulting services for nonprofits, states "we are excited to have Evang. Denise Matthews as our keynote speaker. She has a powerful testimony that will inspire all who hear her."

APFs annual fundraiser benefit is Sunday, December 5, 2004, 6-10pm at CSUS University Sacramento. Guest mistress of ceremonies is Ms. Charlotte Fadipe of KOVR News 13 and Master of Ceremonies is Rev. Leslie Terrell of St. Matthew Baptist Church. APF's extravaganza includes many performers: phenomenal songstress Melinda Pickett (winner of the gospel television show with Rev. Clifton Davis), anointed praise dancer Helen Terry, sensational Bay Area singing group Dynasty (these Asian boys sound just like Boys 2 Men!), spoken word poets Lailah Muwwakkil and Ms. Prissy, fashion models (Spec of the infamous holy hip hop group, The Committee) and more! Special guest comedian to be announced.

APF has been a non-profit organization since 2000 and provides youth scholarships to local high school teens to help them with their college expenses. Last year, APF provided scholarships ranging from $250 to $1000. Mr. James Shelby, President/CEO of the Greater Sacramento Urban League was our keynote speaker last year and this year we are honored to have Evang. Denise Matthews.

Denise Matthews will share her powerful testimony of her life and triumphs and her experience in the entertainment industry. Now a well known and sought after speaker, she has traveled the country spreading the gospel.

Currently an author and poet, Ms. Matthews has authored her autobiography, "Blame It On Vanity"--telling of her life experiences and her newfound life with the Lord. She has overcome her struggles with alcohol, drugs, suicide attempts, illness. The drug abuse nearly drove Matthews insane and almost claimed her life. Eventually, she had an epiphany and turned her life over to Christ.
