This year's in-person annual gala will bring together the city's most influential thought leaders from the corporate, nonprofit, and philanthropic communities for an evening of dinner and dancing to raise critical funding for educational programs that inspire girls from underserved communities to be strong, smart, and bold.  

We are proud to announce that this year's gala will honor Thasunda Brown Duckett, President and CEO of TIAA; La La Anthony, actress, producer, and philanthropist; Beatrice Dixon, founder and CEO of The Honey Pot Company; and Janice Reals Ellig, CEO of the Ellig Group.

Each of these visionary women have elevated women's representation in top levels of leadership and have dedicated their careers to advancing the interests of women and girls.

Also, for the first time at our annual gala, we will celebrate the 2022 College Shower Student Honorees, college-bound high school seniors from our College Shower program, which prepares girls to get into and navigate college. Student honorees will announce their college acceptances and receive scholarships and supplies.

 

We will follow the public health guidance in place at the time of the event, including requiring proof of vaccinations and/or complying with additional safety protocols.

For additional information and sponsorship inquiries, please contact Shea Harris, by email SHarris@girlsincnyc.org or by phone 212-531-7620 x406.

Thank you to our generous sponsors.
