WHAT IS GIRLUP?

What GirlUp focuses on is encouraging and empowering young girls in our Clubs to prepare for the transition from being Great Girls to Great Women.

GirlUp recognizes and builds awareness around the experiences that Boys & Girls Clubs is providing to young women so that they leave the Club as innovators, leaders and doers.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay will be celebrating 35 years of service to young ladies this year by highlighting the many programs and services that help them achieve goals, overcome hurdles and BE GREAT

HIGH TEA IN PLANT CITY

In support of celebrating 35 years of service to young women in Tampa Bay and benefitting the Plant City Boys & Girls Club, GirlUp High Tea in Plant City will unite partners and friends in the community and Club Members that attend the Plant City Boys & Girls Club.

The event will feature a traditional tea service, savory finger sandwiches and delicious sweets. Program will include special guest speaker

Guests will have the chance to network with longstanding and prominent community members as well as meet and mingle with the direct beneficiaries of the event – Club youth!
