Family Feud, created by Mark Goodson, premiered in July 1976 on ABC. It was originally hosted by Richard Dawson and is now currently hosted by Steve Harvey. The game is loved by many and is now a board game available on Amazon and at Target. The game asks team members an array of questions. Individually, team members guess what they believe the general population would respond. Answers are given as “Survey says..” For example, "Name a word that has the word S-U-P-E-R in it." One could respond “supermarket”, “superman” or “superintendent.” The team with the most points wins! At this event, there were groups named Golden Girls, Double Dutch, Fantastic Four, Boss Ladies, etc. Congrats to the Double Dutch team!

The Family Feud Brunch was organized by Hartford’s very own Councilwoman Rose Jo Winch (@rjowinch), who serves as Chair of Labor, Education, Workforce Development, and Youth Committee.  rJo, as she is affectionately called, is a strong advocate for women and children.  She continues to empower women to build their own capital through business creation and she continues to nurture youth who also want to create their own businesses. It was our pleasure to meet her!
