Our 2017 Kick Off Fundraiser is where we take the opportunity in an intimate setting to ask for the help we need to sustain Girls Rising (a non profit 501.c.3). It is because of generous donations that we are able to share our message on a national and international stage. The 2017 Kick Off Fundraiser is where we will award the first annual SHEILA PRIMONT SCHOLARSHIP and the MILT OKUN SCHOLARSHIP to 2 very deserving young women. The Sheila Primont Scholarship will be presented by the inimitable broadway star, Linda Eder, who will perform alongside our amazing, talented BEACHFEST performers in an intimate, acoustic and what is sure to be a collaborative night of music. Live music, open bar, comedy, raffle and light fare will sustain our organization from 7-10pm on Friday 9/15, the eve of BEACHFEST.
Ticket information is below as well as an option to donate now if you are unable to attend. Please consider getting involved with Girls Rising in a way that is meaningful to you.
Your donations are greatly appreciated as are school and community center contacts, help organizing events that would bring our program into your community, sponsorship opportunities and more. Don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.

Join us for our end of summer, day long, BEACHFEST music festival. A free event for the community and a trailblazing festival where all the performers are women. We celebrate Girls Rising by creating a space that empowers women who are constantly marginalized on festival stages. Our Youth Spotlight Stage gives up and coming female performers a chance to gain experience alongside our Capital One Main Stage national touring artists.

OUR MISSION * OUR MESSAGE
Kids need to see it to know they can be it.
GIRLS RISING IS:
A nonprofit organization created by all-female rock band, Antigone Rising, to inspire girls to pursue non-traditional careers (S.T.E.A.M.)!
WHAT WE DO:
We conduct outreach workshops and presentations in local schools and youth centers worldwide, inspiring girls through live performance and thought provoking conversation.
WHY WE DO IT:
Girls need to see strong women succeeding in nontraditional roles. The mainstream media is failing at providing enough adequate examples of strong women in empowering roles. Our outreaches demonstrate to girls (and boys) that strong women exist and have much to contribute to art, culture, and the world around them.
