The Inaugural Academy of SHEroes Gala was a sold out success and a ton of fun! If you missed out on coming this year, stay tuned because the 2019 Gala will be even better.

Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated the unsung SHEroes in our community!!

The proceeds from this event support our programs and our mission to eliminate racism and empower women and families in Greensboro.
