Closing Ceremony and Celebration

Friday, August 5
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Invitation only
Registration is required.

As the Summer comes to an end, Girls For A Change participants find it hard to say goodbye to friends, staff, and their “second home.” Each year, we host an Annual Closing Ceremony to celebrate the power of girls trying new things, discovering themselves, and creating sisterhood. The Closing Ceremony consists of a banquet dinner, awards, live music, and special guests.
