BENEFITING: PEARL CLUB
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2015
The Pearl Club is a 6-year 501(c)(3) college success sisterhood that has a future focus: to prepare young women to graduate from a post-secondary institution, overcome poverty and become contributing members of our society... Strength. Empowerment. Success. One Pearl at a time!
We offer an annual Young Women's Empowerment Conference at a local (Pittsburgh) university. This year's workshop will take place at Chatham University on October 28, 2015. Participants attend various workshops with topics that include mental health awareness, public speaking, financial aid advising, college tours, admissions counseling, and more. This year we are sponsoring over 100 students! The most students we have ever sponsored in our three years of operation.
To ensure that each young woman that expresses a desire to attend is able to, the Pearl Club provides transportation to and from the workshop. We accommodate all transportation needs regardless of the location of the participants. We are one bus short from meeting the needs of all of our students!
- Renting 1 bus for a school day costs $180.
- If 18 folks donated $10 (the price of going out for lunch OR two "artisan" lattes...) we could reach our goal
- If you can't donate $10, donate what you can.
Each gift brings us closer to exposing 100 young women to new opportunities!
