Thank you for celebrating the 2024 Girl Heroes!




Thank you to all our supporters, staff, board members, and friends. Your unwavering commitment and invaluable contributions made the 36th Annual Celebration Luncheon a resounding success! 

We were honored to host nearly 600 esteemed guests, including community leaders, elected officials, and many of our passionate supporters. Your presence and support at this event are not just appreciated, but they are the lifeblood of our mission. Thank you for being a part of our journey!

A big thank you to NBC10’s Latoyia Edwards, mistress of ceremonies, and keynote speaker Hadley Leach, Partner at PwC, who accepted the Strong, Smart, Bold Award on behalf of PwC. PwC has been a longtime partner and supporter of Girls Inc., providing financial support and volunteers, and even hosting field trips to their Boston office. The alumna speaker was Aryana Richardson, Class of 2018, who recently began her career in the PR department of the Harlem Globetrotters. She spoke about her strong, smart, and bold journey to become the incredible woman she is today.

Let’s celebrate again the remarkable achievements of our Girl Heroes, Fadilat, Esther, and Noelia. With the unwavering support of our dedicated staff and mentors, all three are set to embark on their journey to wonderful schools in the fall, where they will all major in engineering. We are immensely proud of their accomplishments and eagerly anticipate the bright futures that await them.

Lastly, and certainly not least, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our fearless leader, Deb, for her 12 years of dedication and service to the girls. Deb, your passion and commitment have been instrumental in the success of Girls Inc. We wish you the best in your next chapter. We also warmly welcome our new CEO, Natalie, and are excited to see the continued success of Girls Inc. under her leadership. 

We are grateful to everyone who joined us and those who were with us in spirit.

A special thank you to all of our sponsors!
