As you can see, our 3RD…YES, 3RD Annual Back to School Social was THE BEST YET! Where do we start? How about our VOLUNTEERS AND SUPPORTERS/ATTENDEES? You know that TEAMWORK makes the DREAM work. And as always, you did JUST THAT! Your constant support and willingness to SHOW UP is something we appreciate more than words can really explain. Keep up the great work! 🙂
Our AMAZING presenter, Portia N. Davis, Pharm.D. presented on “I AM the MAGIC: Leadership.” She discussed the importance of cultivating self-esteem and leadership in the lives of girls starting as early as possible. She also shared the importance of encouraging girls to be leaders among their peers, just as society encourages boys. One of the highlights of her interactive presentation was when she ended with a unique “leadership mirror” activity that you HAD to be there to experience. Before we closed out, all of the girls recited our I AM the Magic Pledge as a reminder to themselves to always see the magic in themselves, that they so easily see in others.
SPONSORS & Individual donors!
This year, our corporate sponsors were Chick-fil-A (Highway 6 & Bellaire) and Sam’s Club (Sugar Land). This is the second year in a row that these two companies not only saw our vision, but decided to support our vision AND increase their support beyond what we were hoping for. Won’t He do it?!
Next up, we have JLenz Photography, who provided us with some AMAZING visuals to share with you! Janee’ Bailey, the owner is extremely creative, professional, and is constantly looking for ways to perfect her craft. She does this by providing an overall customer friendly experience to everyone who hires her. She also happens to be booking NOW for family portraits for the holidays, so contact her today!
Last, but CERTAINLY not least, we partnered with three amazing small businesses who truly believe in the work we are doing in the lives of girls and young women throughout Houston!
These companies are: Sweetie Sweets, A Naturaleza’s Apothecary, and Chosen Essentials! A Naturaleza’s Apothecary and Chosen Essentials provided MAGICAL hand-picked hair, skin, and body goodies in which several of our young ladies were able to go home with. Sweetie Sweets added a MAGICAL TREAT to the event with their custom cupcakes! Who doesn’t love cupcakes? 🙂
