The Foundation for the Young Women’s Leadership Academy of Fort Worth hosted its third-annual fundraiser, Education Is A Girl’s Best Friend, at the Capital Grille. The event featured Gloria Starling, Honorary Chair, Renee Arrington, Foundation Chair, YWLA Principal Tamara Albury and YWLA seniors Emily Morales, Ndey Sesay and Avery Smith.
Guests enjoyed food and wine donated by Capital Grille and a meet and greet with several YWLA students, board members and donors. This year the event raised more than $22,000 for college bound programming at YWLA.
Education is a Girl’s Best Friend 2017 would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our Host Committee Members: Gloria Starling, Larry Anfin, Tracey Amaya, Renee Arrington, Jessica Brandrup, Deborah Ferguson, John Hernandez, Karen Jones, Meloni McDaniel, Winjie Miao, Linda O’Brien, Anita Robinson and Robin Sanders.
The Foundation would also like to take this opportunity to extend our greatest appreciation to our Board of Directors for their support during this event and throughout the year.
