It was a packed house on April 29 when 300+ community changemakers joined Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas for the first-ever Bold Dreams Breakfast. The sold-out event raised over $175,000 to support the organization’s transformational work with K-12 girls in low-income and under-resourced Dallas communities.
The event featured keynote, Laura Harris, from NBC 5 Today Show, and celebrated Sofi Rodney-Hernandez, the first recipient of the Girls Inc. Bold Dreams $15,000 scholarship. The event was presented by sponsor Norton Rose Fulbright and supported by FTI Consulting, Baker Botts, AlixPartners, D Magazine, Anderson Merchandisers, Sidley, Hunt Consolidated, Inc., Holland & Knight, High Profile Staffing, Witherite Law Group, Fidelity Investments, Trophy Nissan and Boy Scouts of America.
For decades, Dallas has entrusted Girls Inc. to provide a safe haven, long-lasting mentoring relationships, and research-based programming to girls from low opportunity areas of Dallas. Still, thousands of girls don’t have access to out-of-school-time programming. The event raised vital funds to help Girls Inc. reach, serve and benefit even more Dallas girls in need.
“We have a unique opportunity to help Dallas girls break the cycle of poverty by supporting each girl to grow up healthy, educated, and independent,” said Beth Myers, CEO of Girls Inc. “Thanks to everyone who joined Co-Chairs, Amy Stewart and Elizabeth Ramirez Washka, our sponsors, speaker, volunteers, Girls Inc. board members and staff to make this event so meaningful.”
