Confident Girl Mentoring Program, Inc. is hosting the 1st Annual Fire Ball for Sickle Cell Disease, recognizing youth and families who are warriors of this chronic illness. We are seeking your support to help us raise awareness and expand on future program opportunities for our youth.
Our mission through advocacy, leadership, social emotional learning and meaningful discussion will help develop life skills that promote self-confidence and self-worth while providing every girl the opportunity to live a healthy productive life and build upon the confidence that's within them. Since its inception, CGMP reached over 1,000 young girls who are often living in or below the poverty level and are often the ones who have some of the greatest needs!
This event will help to raise awareness and bring meaningful resources to link youth/families to healthcare providers, expand our organizations reach to build programs, provide youth with valuable life skills to succeed; and engage parents and families to help raise their level of self-esteem and confidence.
CGMP is a not-for-profit organization that provide programs to marginalized youth through evidence based interventions. We rely heavily on grants and in-kind sponsors to help cover primary costs for program activities for youth. All CGMPs 1st Annual Fire Ball sponsorships include prominent recognition, leading up to and during the event.
Why Should Your Company Support This Event?
Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited incurable disease in which there aren't enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen throughout your body. The disease affects 70,000 to 80,000 Americans causing unbearable pain often described as “Fire” and frequent long-term hospital visits that can result in death.
CGMP recognizes the effects that this disease have on individuals (some who are mentees) and the importance of giving youth and families another means of hope. We invite your organization to join us in honoring Dr. Philip McCarthy of Roswell Cancer Park Institute who through a Bone Marrow Transplant cured the first Sickle Cell patient in Buffalo, NY.
