Dear Community Champion,

We are excited to announce the 8th annual Strong, Smart, and Bold Gala, which will be held virtually and in-person on Friday, April 22nd, at Green Island Country Club from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm This year’s keynote speaker is Olympic gold medalist and WNBA legend, Cynthia Cooper-Dyke. She is the first woman to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In addition, our very own high school athletes will join the festivities at this year’s gala. What an amazing opportunity to hear first-hand Coach Cooper-Dyke’s inspirational story!

The Strong, Smart, & Bold Gala is our biggest fundraising event of the year. This event brings together community partners, donors, and graduates. It will be an evening of inspiration as our community daughters share the incredible, lifechanging opportunities they have experienced while participating in Girls Inc.’s programs. There are currently more than 500 corporate, civic, and community leaders actively supporting Girls Inc. programming.

In addition to our Strong, Smart, & Bold Gala on April 22nd, Coach Cooper-Dyke and other featured guests will be hosting a Coaches Clinic on April 21st from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm at our very own Girls Inc. Gymnasium located at 3535 Levy Road, Columbus, GA 31903. Please purchase your ticket today to attend!

We are thrilled about the growth, success, and level-up opportunities that happen each day here at Girls Inc. and we look forward to sharing and celebrating these wonderful moments with you. Please join us for an evening of celebration of our girls’ achievements and raising funds for Girls Inc. of Columbus as we continue our mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
