This November 12th please join Tyra Banks, Rosario Dawson, Simon Doonan, Jonathan Adler, Sara Tecchia, Benjamin Jealous, Caryl Ratner, Lisa Laukitis and other visionary hosts in celebrating the Grand Opening of the new Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community.  Opening this fall, the new Lower Eastside Girls Club Center will enable the Girls Club to expand their programs from the hundreds of girls they currently serve to thousands of girls, and their families, per year.

The new 30,000 square foot space hosts a full STEM program, including a 30’ dome planetarium, a commercial kitchen for job training and culinary arts, a center for Media and Social Justice, a light-filled arts studio, Maker Shop, sound design, podcast and 'Airstream' recording studio, and the new home of The Tyra Banks TZONE, the Girls Club’s new College and Career Prep program.

The November 12, 2013 Gala will be a magical evening at the beautiful new Girls Club on Avenue D in Manhattan, bringing together some of the most influential changemakers in the worlds of art and culture, science, humanities, entrepreneurship and culinary arts. Guests will be treated to an evening of cocktails, seated dinner throughout the building, music and a raffle with stellar lots.

The Grand Opening Gala will be a night to remember, with proceeds directly benefiting girls in need.
