Hi there! Thanks for visiting my fundraising page :) Some of you may have donated to the Girls Club last year when I ran the Half Marathon for them (your donations were incredibly appreciated, so thank you!).
This year, I'm coordinating a Live Music Benefit with musicians John & Ricky on August 29th at The Winslow! Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/494876244595845/?active_tab=about
If you're not sure you can attend, no worries! Any amount you donate here helps their amazing cause - so thank you so much, in advance!
Some background on the LESGC can be found here for reference: The Lower Eastside Girls Club's mission is “to raise the next generation of environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leaders.” LESGC connects girls and young women to healthy and successful futures. Many of our girls, who are predominately Latina and African American from all five boroughs, lack the advantages that children of middle-class families enjoy: namely, a familiarity with the mainstream avenues to social and economic success, a sense of the different ways one can have a say in the community and the ability to navigate the educational system.
