Celebrating 25 Years

On September 13, 2024, at City Hall Events, (838 W Kinzie St., Chicago, IL, 60642) we will come together for a night of food, drinks, celebration, and community. And you don’t want to miss hearing from girls and coaches who have been impacted by the program and our exciting keynote speaker Tina Tchen, EVP, Strategy & Impact Officer for the Obama Foundation.

Since 1999, we have served more than 105,000 girls in 3rd-8th grade. Your support ensures that each year, we can continue providing the critical programming that supports the social and emotional health of more than 5,000 girls throughout Chicagoland, with an emphasis on underserved communities.

It will be an evening of reflection, joy, unforgettable inspiration, delectable food, unique entertainment, and a fabulous silent auction. Don’t miss out on this special night!

Join us in supporting the next generations of girls as they grow so that together, we shine!

We hope you can join, but if not, consider making a donation above. All proceeds go directly to supporting our programs and services.
