Day of the Girl Fundraiser and Celebration!
October 11, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$50
Celebrating Day of the Girl!
Join Alliance for Girls on the UN Day of the Girl for a fundraiser celebrating 5 years in operation, and the extraordinary power of women and girls. Alliance for Girls is the nation’s largest alliance of girls’ organizations in the country – with 200 members and 8,000 adult allies supporting 300,000 girls and young women every year! Together we are creating a world where a girls’ worth is determined by her mind and spirit, her body is safe and a source of joy, and the sky is her limit.
Gather with other women and girls philanthropists and activists as we celebrate the UN Day of the Girl and Alliance for Girls’ work to strengthen the girls’ movement. Together we will hear from local heroines who are transforming communities, and sip wine with extraordinary women leaders across the San Francisco Bay Area.
