Join us for our Annual Strong, Smart & Bold Luncheon!

Friday, April 24, 2020

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.

In this critical year of change, we are celebrating the transformative power of Girls Inc. programs, and how we – as a community – are creating positive changes for our collective future. As we are expanding what is possible for our girls, we are expanding what is possible for all of us.

Girls Inc. participants Jacqueline, Kayla, and Yonglin 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.
