THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS for making our 2018 Soiree unforgettable. Despite the weather, our beloved guests, sponsors,  restauranteurs and volunteers all rallied and braved the storm to join our empowerHER mission - to support girls who have experienced the early loss of their mothers.  Our powerful guest speakers - a father, a daughter, and a mentor - eloquently and bravely shared how empowerHER has impacted their lives.

IF THE RAIN KEPT YOU AWAY but you still wish to be a part of the magic, there is still time to give.  Click below to support our mission with a tax-deductible gift.
