Annual Holiday Cocktail Party Fundraiser 2016

An Evening with Geena Davis is our annual fundraiser and was held on December 6, 2016 at the William Turner Gallery in Santa Monica, California. This event is attended by 200 thought leaders in the entertainment industry. Since its beginning, four years ago, this event has raised almost $160,000 to support the research, education and advocacy programs that are creating a world where girls grow up surrounded by positive reminders of their equality and worth.
