Gala Celebrates Girls and Nationally Recognized Girl Projects!
San Jose, CA—Wednesday, February 19, 2014— Two nationally recognized projects will be among the many projects by girls highlighted during the Girls For A Change 4th Gala, presented by U by Kotex. The gala, which is an annual celebration of girls and signature fund raising event for Girls For A Change, a national organization that empowers girls to create social change, is set for Friday, March 7, 2014, 5:30-10 p.m. at the Palo Alto Hills Golf and Country Club, 3000 Alexis Drive, Palo Alto, California. 
One of the two nationally recognized projects was featured by The Huffington Post. As a Girl Ambassador for Girls For A Change, in conjunction with U by Kotex, Bay Area teenager Alice Wilder produced a video encouraging other high school girls not to be embarrassed about their periods. In the meantime, girls in a Girls For A Change program in Richmond, Virginia started a special father-daughter dance for girls with incarcerated fathers that takes place inside a city jail. That dance was highlighted in a TED Talk and has since been featured in national media to include ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, Inside Edition, and the Washington Post. 
These, and other projects by girls, will be recognized at the Girl Gala to help celebrate what the organization is all about…the girls’ voices, and the opportunity for them to be heard.
The Girl Gala will also feature dinner, a live performance by teen band URDOM, live and silent auctions, Change Agent Awards, Keynote Speaker Sharna Fey, a life coach and leadership consultant with more than 20 years of experience, and Courtney Martin, an award-winning journalist and widely sought-after speaker on activism and feminism, as Mistress of Ceremonies. 
Girls and Coaches from Girls For A Change will be seated at every table, so attendees are encouraged to bring their children to share in the occasion, learn more about the organization, and be inspired by the girls being recognized, as well as the other women in attendance. 
The gala will also present attendees with the opportunity to meet and welcome new Girls For A Change CEO Angela Patton, who is also the Founder of Richmond, Virginia-based Camp Diva. 
In addition, Kotex will be recognized for their support of Girls For A Change over the years. 
Girls For A Change hopes to raise $75,000 from this year’s event. Tickets and other information about the event, and Girls For A Change, are available online at www.girlsforachange.org. #girlgala #socialchange

This is our signature celebratory event, originally created by the girls taking part in Camp Diva. Date with Dad features interactive activities within a highly-festive banquet-style setting equivalent to that of a ball. It’s an afternoon where dads and their daughters of all ages dress up in formal or semi-formal attire and enjoy a red carpet entrance with interviews by a local celebrity, a catered dinner, live entertainment, contests, prizes, photos, special guests, and of course, lots of dancing!

Camp Diva also honors a group of dads with Real Father Awards (Nominate Dad http://bit.ly/10z92US) as the result of letters written about them by their daughters.

We emphasize the importance of the father-daughter relationship because the father is the first significant man in his daughter’s life and he plays a unique and essential role in the development of her image, confidence, and self esteem. This is a time for dads and daughters to have a special “Date Night” to bond, and for dad to serve as a model date to his daughter. This will be a night that both dad and daughter will never forget! This event will also benefit the CAMP DIVA SUMMER RETREAT Scholarship program.

The goal of the event is not only to foster better communication between fathers and daughters, and provide a place for them to spend some all-important quality time, but also to demonstrate the importance of the father-daughter relationship and show that despite the high rates of father absence there are fathers who are active in their daughters’ lives…and loving it!
