Girls Rock NC - Silent Auction

Girls Rock NC's first annual Silent Auction on April 19th from 7-9pm on the lovely porch of Durham's Parker and Otis. The event will feature food and wine from local vendors, music from Rebecca and the Hi-Tones, campers sharing their stories about their camp experiences, and some incredible arts, crafts and services from the Triangle's creative community up for auction!

In it's fifth year, Girls Rock NC has grown from a one week camp for 24 girls to four full programs for almost 100 girls, and is an official nonprofit organization. With the money raised from the auction, the organization should be able to achieve their goal of eight full scholarships this summer. With any extra money raised, they will begin to build their year-round programming which will include after school music lessons/facilitated band practice and a lending library that includes music, books and instruments for girls in the program. Programs are open to any 7-17 year old girl that wants to participate--no experience or equipment necessary!

With the support of the creative community at large there are more and more camps forming each year. Imagine tens of thousands of girls entering adult society who truly believe in themselves and are absolutely unafraid to make their voices heard.
