COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Great Girls Wonderful Women annual gathering benefiting girls who participate in programming at Foundation for Youth will have a virtual event this year.

Proceeds from the event benefit the FFY Scholarship Fund, which provides girls a chance to participate in FFY programming even if registration fees are a barrier for the family.

This year’s event, with a theme of “Resilience,” will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Oct. 20, with participants in groups of eight at virtual tables for the event.

Kimberly Easton will emcee, along with FFY participant Caroline Andrus, as is tradition for the event to have a “Great Girl” as part of the emcee duties.
