“A Day At A Time” Foundation based in Newark celebrated the 4th Annual Trailblazer Award ceremony and fundraiser on Friday. All proceeds from the event benefits the organization’s Wonder Y.E.A.R.S (Young Entrepreneurs Achieving Real Success), a media summer program for teens.

“Our Mission is to raise strong, healthy, and well-balanced girls locally and internationally by providing tools and resources to change the world,” says the organization’s founder Lunic Boyd.
