It has been a few days since our gala, and we are still reliving the amazing support and energy of that night. In August, we had this ambitious idea of hosting a gala in the fall. Planning went underway fast and efficiently; we were determined to make our first gala a success. Soon enough October was here and we were getting more and more excited about the event. Many were happy to help 1girl and donate items for 25 different baskets for our basket raffle, buy 50/50 raffle tickets, donate and volunteer with us!
We have many to thank for an amazing 1st Annual Gala. We would like to thank those who have supported 1girl from the beginning and are dedicated advocates for our cause. Thank you, also, to our interns, board members, facilitators and volunteers who help us every day. Finally, we would like to thank our corporate sponsors who will help 1girl grow and turn more girls into young leaders. Thank you to our premier sponsors WilsonRMS and gearDigital. We appreciate our gold sponsors ViaVero, the Builders Exchange of Central Ohio and the Builders Exchange Foundation. Also, a big thank you to our silver sponsors Wholly Craft, Kiger Investments LLC, Dr. Patricia Cunningham and Dr. Marium Husain.
Our 1st Gala was such a success – thanks to all of these wonderful individuals and corporations. We are already planning for our gala next year, and it will be even better than the one this year. 1girl is constantly growing and trying to be the best we can be. Thank you for believing in our mission, supporting us, and allowing for us to influence many girls’ lives. In the end, it is all about them and you allow us to continue our work! Thank you all again.
