Description

Girls Health Ed is so excited to announce our upcoming annual benefit event, "Girls Around the Globe" to take place on November 2 at the United Nations Foundation, DC.

We are celebrating FIVE years of making a difference! In these last 5 years, we have impacted over 1,800 girls and young women, by providing programming that focuses on them healthy and educated. It is through the support of our donors, partners, and the public that we have been able to provide health education to as many girls as possible, and we hope for many more to come!

This rooftop reception has consistently grown each year, and last year, was listed on the United State of Women's website as one of the premiere events to attend in the district during the Obama White House flagship women's empowerment summit. It will once again be held at the United Nations Foundation, in Washington, DC, in collaboration with Girl Up. Your ticket purchase includes food, drinks, live entertainment and the opportunity to bid on vacation packages, jewelry, experiences and more in our silent auction.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Angela Jones. Dr. Angela of AskDrAngela.com is equal parts best girlfriend and bold professional, supporting women’s health with innovative approaches to care and heavy doses of humor. Dr. Angela has done more than launch a successful practice, she has defined herself as a voice for a new generation of womanhood, established her Ask Dr. Angela brand committed to authenticity, and built a community rooted in trust, candor, and compassion. She is a wife, a mother, a Midwesterner, and an award-winning OB/GYN.

Lamont Easter will serve as the emcee for the evening. Lamont is a television, film and commercial actor who has had or is currently making recurring appearances on shows such as Netflix's House of Cards, HBO's VEEP, CBS's Madam Secretary, and in various national commercials. He is also featured in numerous national print campaigns and many corporate video productions and has had leading and supporting roles in several independent films.

...Additional speakers, special guests and live entertainment to be announced! Please join us as we celebrate and raise funds to continue to empower girls and young women!
