And the event is all to help raise awareness and funds for two great causes. Proceeds from the event will benefit both GEMS and Operation Backpack.
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Life Preservers has supported Girls Educational and Mentoring Services for 7 years. GEMS mission is to empower girls and young women, ages 12–24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential. GEMS is committed to ending commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of children by changing individual lives, transforming public perception, and revolutionizing the systems and policies that impact sexually exploited youth.
In 2014, the New York City Chapter of Women in eDiscovery began its support of Operation Backpack. Each year since 2001, Volunteers of America-Greater New York has been distributing new backpacks filled with grade-specific school supplies to homeless children throughout New York City. A filled backpack relieves parents of a financial burden and provides a sense of normalcy to the otherwise chaotic lives of these children, helping them to look and feel more like their classmates. Most importantly, a filled backpack allows these children to start the school year feeling prepared and confident, with the knowledge that their education is important and that someone believes in them.
Thank you to our sponsors who help to make this event a success each year. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
