Pen and Brush Hosts Girls Write Now Fundraiser

 

The mission of Girls Write Now is that “it mentors underserved young women to find their voices through the power of writing and community.  A cause that I personally completely endorse!!!!!

Their approach is that they serve high school girls throughout New York City’s 5 boroughs-over 90% who are in high need and  about 95% who are girls of color (all who must rise above the race and income-based inequalities of the city’s public school education and workforce).  They provide one-on-one mentoring with professional women writers and media makers, have writing and technology workshops and also teach leadership, college prep as well as  professional developmental opportunities.

So that on November 30th, 2017 ,  Girls Write Now will be having a poker tournament to benefit literacy and mentoring. This fundraiser will be hosted by Pen + Brush and will feature professional poker players Annie Duke, Katy Lederer (author of Poker Face) and Ellen Leikind, ( author of Poker Woman) and CEO of Prima Poker Divas. The event will include d’oeuvres, wind, spirits and exclusive prizes, all while helping support the next generation of women writers.
