Girls Inc. of the Island City (GIIC) invites you to partner
with us at our upcoming 22nd Annual Hats Off to strong,
smart & bold Women Who Dare Awards presentation!
This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday, March
20, 2021 and will stream live on YouTube.
COVID-19 has not only changed the look and feel of our
annual Gala but also the way we are now providing our
services and programming, both virtually and in person,
mostly to girls and families of essential workers. Until we
are able to return to in-person programming for 600 girls,
proceeds from the Gala will provide much-needed
• PPE and COVID-19 supplies to safely keep our
elementary programs open to a small number of girls.
• Technology infrastructure so we can continue to
develop and implement impactful, full-day, in-person
programs. Girls complete their schoolwork on laptops
with staff support and safely interact with their peers
while parents return to their jobs.
• The development and continuation of our critical, online
social-emotional learning model based on our successful
GEMS (Girls. Empowerment. Mentoring. Support.)
program that expands these services beyond Alameda.
• The continuation of the development & implementation
of online versions of our transformative Girls Inc.
elementary and teen programs that not only serve our
Alameda families, but also reach other communities.
We offer several opportunities for sponsorship with
benefits to enhance your company’s visibility and we look
forward to discussing them with you.
Thank you for your support!
