The proceeds will be used to support the mission of Girl’s Inc. —-Inspiring all girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold. We serve hundreds of girls in Monroe County through such afterschool programs as economic literacy, preventing adolescent pregnancy, and media awareness. We also team up in volleyball, basketball, dance and other great team activities.
