Last night was the 5th Annual Girls Fight Back for Shannon Mac fundraiser. As usual, it was a huge success. In years past, the line to get in was around the building, so this year we decided not to send out a press release advertising it. Frankly, it didn’t seem to matter much. Sluggers was still packed with great people celebrating the legacy of an amazing girl.
The money raised from this event will go towards free self-defense programs for Chicago area high schools. If you are a teacher in the area and would like a free program, go to the GFB website and contact us for more information.
A big thanks to everyone who attended and those who donated money. As always, thank you to the McNamara family for supporting all we do here at Girls Fight Back in memory of Shannon. Her resilient spirit lives on… (pic above of myself and some friends of GFB: Neal, Steph and Jay)
