You're invited to a Wine Tasting Fundraiser supporting Don't Hate Me, the documentary about girls self esteem and empowerment.
A lifetime of poor self esteem can follow you from childhood to adulthood. The film, Don't Hate Me reveals the trials and tribulations that some young women experience while coming of age and coping with life's pressures to "fit in" and succeed at a pivotal stage of their lives. The film raises awareness and sparks the dialogue regarding how society can help our girls grow up empowered with a positive sense of self. The film also serves as a call to action for volunteers and mentors to get involved in the lives of young women.
For your donation of $30,00 (plus tax) you will receive a fun-filled evening of tasting 5 select wines of your choice and snacks in a relaxing atmosphere. $20.00 from your ticket purchase goes directly to the film as well as for each glass and bottle of wine purchased, a portion goes to the campaign. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the Eventbrite logo below or at the door the evening of the event.
If you cannot attend this event but still want to donate to the film, you can do so here.
Your donations will support the post production finishing funds for this very important film; your support is greatly appreciated.
