Ready, Set, Recap 2017 with TGIA!

TGIA has had many exciting things happen in 2017. We had many events, fundraisers, new volunteers sign ups, and even were the beneficiary of a very generous donation. Take a look at all we accomplished last year.

After School Pilot Program Kickoff

December 15th, 2017 marked the end of our Pilot Program at Thomasboro Academy. Utilizing a classroom at the Academy, we provided tutoring and mentoring services, as well as implemented our character development curriculum. For our enrichment activity, we were able to take the girls to see their first ballet performance, The Nutcracker.

ACC Casino Night

On Friday, August 25, 2017 the Association of Corporate Counsel-Charlotte (ACC-Charlotte) hosted their invitation-only 7th Annual Night of Casino Games at The Palmer Building in Charlotte. Talented Girls In Action was chosen, along with three other local charities, as a beneficiary of this event.

Each charity received a $2,500 award from ACC-Charlotte to support their efforts to serve the community. It was an evening of fun using “funny money” to play Las Vegas-style games.​

We were very grateful to be acknowledged by ACC-Charlotte, with special thanks to TGIA board member, Lisbeth Driskill for bringing us to their attention.

The brunch included a casual meet and greet with TGIA participants and board members. In addition, guest were invited to take part in games and learn different ways TGIA is making a difference in the Charlotte community.
