Daisy Rock sponsors the Fifth Annual WriteGirl Gala (6/24/06)
Daisy Rock is pleased to sponsor the Fifth Annual WriteGirl Gala Celebration and Book Release on Saturday, June 24, 2006. The event will be held at the Writers Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills, CA, where WriteGirl members, their mentors and celebrity guests will read excerpts from WriteGirl\'s newest anthology.
WriteGirl (www.writegirl.org) is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering at-risk, teen girls through creative writing and mentoring. WriteGirl offers high school girls one-on-one mentoring, monthly workshops, public readings and publishing opportunities. Girls explore poetry, fiction, songwriting, journalism and more through innovative activities led by accomplished writers. The result is increased self-confidence, improved written and verbal communication skills and, most importantly, an expanded view of themselves, their community and their world. In addition, 100% of WriteGirl’s seniors have not only graduated from high school but also enrolled in college, in sharp contrast to the 50% drop-out rates they face at some of L.A.’s most overcrowded schools. Many are the first members in their families to attend college.
In addition to the readings and celebration, this event will also feature a silent auction where guests can bid on some great prizes, including a Daisy Rock Monarch Butterfly Short Scale Guitar. For more information about the Gala and WriteGirl, please visit www.writegirl.org.
