Inspire girls to be Strong, Smart and Bold!

I volunteered at a wonderful event last night called Women of Taste.
This event brings together the East Bay community to support the growth
and achievement of girls and young women in Alameda County.

This event features the Bay Area's finest chefs, restaurants, wineries,
beverage companies and a unique culinary-inspired art auction, Art for
Epicures, with handmade art by "strong, smart and bold" women artists
and Power Platters created by notable women celebrities.

Girls Inc. is a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire all
girls to be strong, smart and bold. Girls Inc. offers academic
enrichment activities, skill-building programs, and counseling services to girls
and their families. Girls Inc can be found all over the U.S. including
Colorado and New York. So, if you are looking for a place to give back

However, there are plenty of areas that surround these hot pockets that are seeing some major price reductions.
