This past week, the Clickbooth team had the exciting opportunity to attend the annual luncheon for the Sarasota chapter of Girls Inc. This incredible organization was founded in 1864 with the original intent of helping women and girls overcome adversity in the aftermath of the Civil War. Since then, they have expanded in mission and reach, but their core values have remained the same: to help support, educate, and mentor girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
Each year, Girls Inc. hosts a luncheon to showcase the girls’ achievements, thank donors, give out awards, and to raise donations for the coming year. This year, the theme of the luncheon was “Captain of Her Ship,” reinforcing the message that these girls are in control of their lives and futures.
Clickbooth, a long time advocate of Girls Inc and sponsor of their community programs, was thrilled to sponsor a table at the luncheon for the second year in a row. With a predominantly female employee demographic and a female CEO – a rarity in the tech industry – Clickbooth is unique in its support of women and girls. The team at Clickbooth is honored to have the opportunity to give back to such a wonderful organization.
“The best indicator of a successful nonprofit network is success at the local level. Girls Inc. of Sarasota County meets and exceeds that level of success at every outcome measurement. Girls Inc. of Sarasota proves that local affiliates are able to leverage their relationships with community partners to deliver maximum impact to girls who need support most.”
– Judy Vredenburgh, National Girls Inc. President and CEO
The luncheon was an inspiring and emotional event that exemplified the success and impact that Girls Inc. has had in Sarasota. From heartfelt speeches from current students to the all-girls choir performance, the luncheon was a great opportunity for the community to better understand just how much the organization is improving the lives of girls in Sarasota.
