New Years Eve 2017 Bash!!
This event is a 100% “giveback” event, meaning, no person or entity if profiting from it at Girl Power Brand. 100% of the registration fee is given back to the partygoers in the form of access, food, prizes, security, etc. We have negotiated with the venue to secure a better deal for everyone, as a group, but we must pay them some of the money up front to do the deal. Thank you for your support!
A percentage of the proceeds to be donated to the following charities:
1. She’s the First
This non-profit sponsors education in low-income countries by giving young girls a chance to become the first in their families to graduate from secondary school.

2. Girls Write Now

3. Girls Who Code
Founded by MAKER Reshma Saujani, this nonprofit inspires young girls to pursue computer science by exposing them to real-life and digital role models.
