strong, smart, and Bold awards luncheon
Through this annual event, we honor three outstanding women from throughout the state of Delaware that live the Girls Inc. mission: Inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, & bold. In addition, this event raises critical funds which enable us to reach more girls and to inspire them to stand on their own two feet and to fight for a brighter future.
