We continue to hear positive comments – about the reception on the Palace stage, the fabulous food and spirits, the wonderful silent auction items, and the tremendously inspirational addresses made by our own Girls Inc. Girls of the Year Blessin Green and Zania Deans, Emerging Leader award recipient Sable Lynch, and Fuel Her Fire award recipient Mayor Kathy Sheehan. 

With your support, local girls continue to thrive in the safe, nurturing environment of Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region where they learn how to be strong, smart, and bold young women.

Thank you again to all that supported this first-ever FUEL HER FIRE Awards Celebration and helping to fuel the inner fire of girls and women who, one day, will change the world!
