GIRLS WHO ROCK, an electrifying, inspiring benefit concert, will take place on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at Santos Party House in New York City.  Female recording artists Kat DeLuna, Lenka, MoZella, Shontelle, Cara Salimando and Kelli Pyle, along with DJ Kalkutta, will make music to make a difference for She’s the First, raising funds to support girls’ education in Africa.  She’s the First is a global education campaign that sends girls to school around the world, so they can break barriers and become "the first" to achieve amazing goals.

Brooklyn-based actor Chris Bashinelli will emcee the evening. Bashinelli is executive director and host of "Bridge the Gap," an internationally recognized documentary web series about sustainable development and cultural immersion. Special appearance by AfricAid's founder Ashley Shuyler.

 

Ticket sales, $20 for general admission and $50 for VIP (VIP includes drink ticket, special mingling area, and food), proceedsfrom the event will benefit the education of deserving teenage girls in Tanzania via AfricAid, a partner of the She’s the First campaign.  

 

AfricAid was chosen as the beneficiary because the organization recently piloted The Kisa Project, an initiative that enrolls girls in leadership training and digital storytelling workshops, where they learn to share their lives with sponsors through rich, vivid videos. 

For this reason,GIRLS WHO ROCK is proud to be featured as part of Internet Week New York and will be broadcastonlivestream.com/girlswhorockny for a global audience.
