Each year at our New York Luncheon, we are proud to honor remarkable women who, through their work and example, are creating a better future for girls. On March 15, 2012, at the New York Marriott Marquis Broadway Ballroom, we held our 28th Luncheon and celebrated extraordinary individuals and the Girls Inc. mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
