Our annual Give Thanks events offer us a chance to come together to celebrate and honor those who have tirelessly worked to create a world where all girls grow up to be healthy women. The cocktail event takes place after a month-long competition to provide healthy meals for families in need. Board members and celebrity supporters participate in the Annual Turkey Challenge, each competing to see who can give the most. Winners are announced at the fundraiser. This year Yandy Smith-Harris takes on reigning champion Mona Scott-Young who has remained undefeated in four years. Board members Dr. Janice Johnson Dias and Lisa Maxwell continue their fierce competition of whose friends are the most giving. Support your favorite team and "donate $25 or more" for families in need. Meals include 20lbs turkey and 5lb bag of organic fruits and vegables. This year we are honoring our "Philly Collaborative": an extraordinary group of community change agents who have helped in training over 300 youth as well as directed and organized our largest public health initiative (#RootsRockRun5k training and race).
