Dear Friend of Girls Inc. of the Island City,
Thanks to the generous and enthusiastic support of our sponsors, attendees, donors, and volunteers, we had an incredibly empowering and inspirational Hats Off to Women Who Dare luncheon at the beautiful Oakland Scottish Rite Center on February 10th, 2018. Because of you, we raised over $100,000 to support innovative and transformative programs that inspire girls to be strong (healthy), smart (educated), and bold (independent).
We are especially grateful to our amazing, hardworking, and dedicated Board, Women Who Dare Committee, Staff, and Emcee/Auctioneer DawnMarie Kotsonis for making Women Who Dare 2018 such a tremendous success!
We also want to thank: Oakland Scottish Rite Center, Checkers Catering, Douglas Parking, and Robert Lynch of Irish Monkey Cellars.
Hats Off to our major sponsors: AEC Living, The Felts Family Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, Shum Financial, Alameda Hospital, Alameda Pediatric Dentistry, Cool Safety, The Dang Family, and Lauren Kelley & Family. All of our sponsors appear on the right margin. Please support these individuals and organizations who not only contribute to Girls Inc. of the Island City, but also provide time, talent, and treasure to so many local and East Bay youth and communities.
Congratulations again to the exceptional girls, teens, and women who thoroughly impressed and inspired us with their amazing presentations and speeches. You truly exemplify strong, smart, and bold!
Honorees: Cammie Harris, Dr. Amy Patick, Joey Gong, My Tam Tran (Tammy), and Weezie Mott.
Best Foot Forward Girls: Preston, Lauren, Giannina, Zola, Ariana, Kalyn, Scarlette, Emiko, Jillian Rose, Dharma, Arianna, Bella, Penny, and Timmyanni.
