The 4th Annual Girls in Action I AM Fundraiser Breakfast was a great success!  We were thrilled to be joined by 220 people who came to celebrate and support our girls! Thanks to our major sponsor Wells Fargo and Virtual Offices and to the over 15 corporations who supported as table sponsors. We raised $31,000 and many committed to continued support for the program for the 2016-17 school year.  See highlights below
