Girls Inc. of the Valley announces the date for their annual Spirit of Girls event. This event will help Girls Inc. of the Valley raise $105k to support ongoing program needs for girls in the Valley.
Girls Inc. of the Valley’s Spirit of Girls is usually held in-person at the Log Cabin, where a room of 500 people hear directly from girls about their Girls Inc. Experience. Like many other organizations, they’ve had to leave their in-person events behind and opt for safer, virtual options. This year’s Spirit of Girls event will be held 100% virtually, but attendees will still feel the familiar sentiments of the traditional program. Attendees will still hear directly from girls, staff, and others, regarding the importance of celebrating her place at the table. Girls Inc. of the Valley hopes folks will leave feeling enthusiastic about the next generation of leaders, who are already leading in their communities. Fundraising will happen online before, during, and after the event, with the ambitious goal of raising $105,000 to fund ongoing program needs at Girls Inc. of the Valley.

“We are so thrilled to bring Spirit of Girls back virtually this year,” said Suzanne Parker, Girls Inc. of the Valley’s Executive Director. “We had to cancel last year’s event due to the pandemic, but we are certain that this year’s virtual event will bring the energy and enthusiasm folks are used to experiencing at the in-person breakfast. A top-notch group of movers and shakers are working hard to deliver an inspiring, exciting experience for all who join us. Please join us virtually on May 6th as we celebrate her place at the table from the comfort of your home!”
