The media has made girls and women question their appearance and physical strength, insisting relentlessly that we should all be thinner and “hotter.” Many are now pushing back, saying that “strong” is the new “beautiful,” and MEDIAGIRLS is among them. That’s why we’re bringing girls and women of all ages (as well as dads and male guardians) together to learn how to celebrate our inner and outer strength. Dress comfortably; bring an open mind, a yoga mat if you have your own, and cash ($5 and $10 denominations) for our “strong girl” raffle items! BONUS RAFFLE PRIZE: 2 Concert Tickets to Ariana Grande in Boston! Tickets to the event are limited and are first come, first serve.
April 28th from 3 PM to 5 PM
*Early Bird Admission: $10 off each ticket until March 31st.
**Each person attending, adult or child, needs a purchased ticket (if you are an adult bringing a girl, you’ll need to buy two tickets).
