Girls Inc and the Oakland Raiders –
Last night was simply amazing! That was my thoughts when I woke up on June 4th, 2015.
The hard and smart working Girls Inc. of Alameda County team and the Steering Committee saw the fruits of our labor showcased at the 1st College Shower which took place at the Girls Inc headquarters in downtown Oakland, CA! 18 college bound girls were showered with gifts (included laptops and Bebe gift bags) and a host of media! I was fortunate to have my picture with the Oakland Raiders (one of the awesome sponsors) featured on their website the very next day!
It felt good to make a real difference in someone’s life. I think that goes for all of us that were involved in making this very special night happen. There was a committee of 15 professional women teamed with some of the amazing Girl’s Inc staff and some generous sponsors.
These girls worked hard all year long, did what was asked of them (and more) and are ready to start their college experience armed with confidence and the right tools for success.
When a small group gather in the name of good, the sky is the limit.
