The Alexandria chapter of Dining for Women (I am the chapter leader) wants to show the amazing documentary Girl Rising at our newly-renovated Old Town theater on Wednesday May 29, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. - and we can do it only if we get 100 seats reserved by May 17. I need each of you to help make this happen! A little background:

The film was created by 10x10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls. 

Girl Rising tells the stories of 9 girls from around the world who face -and overcome - unbelievable obstacles on the path toward getting an education. Each girl's story was written by an author and is narrated by a cast of great actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others. The cinematography is stunning and I really am excited to see the film, and to be involved in a global effort for girls' education.
