The cost is $50 per person.   Our keynote speaker is Dr. Lonise Bias. Her journey was navigated as a public speaker after the death of her oldest son, Len Bias a University of Md. basketball player, who died of cocaine intoxication in June of 1986 two days after being drafted by the Boston Celtics. Forty two months later, December 1990 the Bias family experienced the death of their second son Jay the victim of a drive by shooting.
