Join us for our Annual Strong, Smart & Bold Luncheon!
Friday, April 12, 2019
Join us for an afternoon that never fails to inspire – whether through the remarkable achievements of local honorees and leaders, or our Girls Inc. Teen Scholars, who have broken down barriers to move toward bold futures of their own. This year we are celebrating how, together, we are expanding what is possible for our girls and alumnae.
Girls Inc. participants Emani, Tiffany, and Vanessa will take the stage to share their stories and how they have redefined their futures because of Girls Inc.
Year after year, we hear from supporters that there is nothing like hearing our girls’ stories in their own voices. Whether you join us every year, or you will be attending for the first time, we hope to count you among the 500 friends and allies who will come together to invest in girls in our community and be inspired by their stories.

“Girls Inc. provided a safe and welcoming environment for me at a time when I felt the most abandoned.”
“Girls Inc. taught me that I should not be hindered by my own self-doubt and that I can succeed at anything if I try.”
“My Girls Inc. experience has shown me an awareness of my role to challenge and alter the way women are often identified in society and the importance of pushing those boundaries.”
