Girls Inc. celebrates Committee of 100

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some South Georgia women got an up close view of the changes they're helping to make in the lives of some young ladies.

At their 15th Annual celebration dinner, members of the Girls Inc. Committee of 100 were honored.

The committee is made up of women who serve as positive role models for young members and provide financial contributions to the organization. They heard testimonies from past and present members on what Girls Inc. means to them which gives the committee proof they're getting a good return on their investment.

"Their contributions help greatly because 100 percent of the dollar goes right back into programming and in this economic time, these types of fundraisers are very important to us so it speaks volumes that these women want to continue to support Girls Inc. programming," said Girls Inc. Executive Director LaKisha Bryant.

There were individual honors Monday night and some long-time volunteers were inducted into the Millenium Club for being members for 10 years.
