Watch as our friends at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel honor LEAD Girls
with pink and teal lighting representing our organization.

The 2021 Soirée Celebration is…different.
Yet it’s the same as ever.

This year’s soirée, much like last year’s event, will be different. With in-person gatherings still discouraged, we are once again hosting our anniversary benefit online. While there will be no dinner or champagne to share among friends, no thrill of the live auction or the friendly bidding wars waged for silent auction baskets, we will have—and what we do have—is the generous and unwavering support of our many donors and supporters rallying for our girls and for our organization. We are so grateful for you!

While this year’s soirée looks different, in many ways it feels familiar. We’ll come together one evening and we’ll rally to help girls build their futures, starting now.

Every donation to fund our work, every email to cheer our girls’ accomplishments, every note to encourage our staff, and every post, share and prayer on behalf of LEAD Girls is an investment in our organization. Thank you for believing in our mission and giving your time and resources to help us make bright, prosperous futures possible for girls in Winston-Salem and beyond.

If you’re able to make a donation to our newly-created LEADher Circle, we welcome your sustaining gift to fund our work. Click below to view the giving levels and make your contribution.

Whatever your gift, please know that we’ll put it to immediate use helping girls grow into the leaders our community can rely upon. Thank you for supporting LEAD Girls!

What do our girls say about the LEAD Program?

"Its a safe place to talk to people who are going through similar things and just get advice without them judging you. We learn a lot of helpful things that help us do better in school and in life."

Angela*, age 13

"I've never really known what I want to do when I grow up but LEAD has taught me that I have options and I can set goals for my future and actually accomplish them. I'm happy that I know I can have a plan and do something exciting with my future. "

Rosa*, age 14

“LEAD has helped me get through a lot of my stress and anxiety around online school. Being able to log on and talk to people about my stress has helped me. I love how we start the workshops by asking how we are and talking to each other about how we feel.”

Jaylin*, age 12
* Names are changed to protect the privacy of our youth participants.

Confidence, security, leadership and stability are just a few things more than 200 girls build with help from LEAD every year.
