Non-profit organization directly thanks its donors
Women celebrated at the 19th annual Committee of 100 event as a way to thank all of the donors who gave $100 or more to Girls Inc. on Friday evening.
Director Sherrell Alexander says the non-profit organization relies on donations to continue running and the event is a way to show those donors exactly where their money is going and what impact it has made.
"With events like this, we allow our girls to come out and they tell their story and they tell what impact Girls Inc. has made on their lives so that our donors can see just how valuable their gift is and just how valuable the programs that we provide are to our girls," said Alexander.
The programs include educating young girls on teenage pregnancy, alcohol and drug prevention and simply how to transition from girlhood to womanhood.
