Viewpoint: Girls, Inc. hosts Wine Market

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An exciting event is planned for Friday night in Albany that will help make a life-changing difference for a girl.

Girls, Inc. will host Wine Market. Albany's premier wine tasting event, and it's a chance for all of us to support an organization that's doing great work.

100% of Girls, Inc. girls graduate from high school and most are first- generation college students.

And while the teen pregnancy rate in Dougherty County is 48%, it's only been 2% among girls at Girls, Inc.

Girls, Inc. was recently honored as a White House Champion of Change for its work in substance abuse prevention and was named the 2012 Nonprofit of the year by the Albany Chamber of Commerce.

We congratulate this organization and hope that you'll show your thanks by supporting tomorrow night's event at Stonebridge Golf and Country Club.

You can be a part of making that life-changing difference for a girl!
