Congratulations Famous Names Products!

Delane’s Natural Nail Care’s Steps to Success (DNNC STS) has selected you to receive the DNNC Steps to Success Industry Award of the Year for your outstanding work and contributions to the nail care industry. With your combined 60 years of leadership in an industry you helped shape, we truly appreciate all you have done to make our nail care industry what it is today! We salute you!

As you know, Delane’s Natural Nail Care (DNNC) Steps to Success helps low-income single mothers alleviate employment and health hardships while providing living wages. With a focus on African American women and parents, we train women in nail care to build their financial literacy, learn entrepreneurship, and develop professional and social skills. It is our vision to disrupt generational poverty and provide a sustainable, empowered future for vulnerable women and children.

This program is born from my life experience as a former low-income single teen mother from Oakland, California. I love sharing my story often with program participants to help them move through hardship to obtain professional and personal fulfillment — and success!

We are honored that you have shared your plans to attend our second annual DNNC Steps to Success fundraising dinner on Thursday, November 1, 2018 as distinguished guest but now you will also be our awardees! The event will take place at the San Leandro Community Center, 13909 E 14th St, San Leandro, CA 94578 at 7:00 PM. Please contact us by September 28th to confirm your attendance and award acceptance. Additionally, we would like to receive a bio and headshots of you together for our media needs.

Again, congratulations and we thank you for your support and the significant ways you have enriched the manicure industry.

Delane Sims,
Executive Director
