We’ve got three important updates to share with you in this New Year!
1girl is excited to announce its Fourth Annual 1girl Gala will be held on October 5, 2017 at The Grange Insurance Audubon Center. Come mingle with our program facilitators, 1girl board members and supporters and find out more about 1girl. There will be heavy appetizers, drinks and a huge silent auction. If you’re interested in sponsoring the Gala, please contact Stephanie Union at [email protected]. For now, get the date on your calendar. We will send out an announcement when tickets go on sale.
1girl is also pleased to present a private screening of the movie “Girl Rising.” From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors give them voice.
We will be presenting this movie with the Women Lawyers of Franklin County. Tickets are only $15 and will include a beverage and popcorn. The screening will be held at Dawson (1114 Dublin Rd., Columbus, OH) on February 16th from 5:30 until 8:30. We will have a stimulating discussion about the movie once it concludes. There are a limited number of tickets available, so get yours before they are gone. The link to purchase your tickets is: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/girl-rising-screening-tickets-31005201392
Finally, 1girl is seeking an intern for the spring semester. We are looking for someone who is a good writer, comfortable on social media, and has good communication skills. We anticipate a 15 hour per week unpaid internship. This will involve grant responsibilities, data collection, social media posting and program monitoring. If interested, please send a resume to [email protected].
