Thank you!

Hello Oxfam Salt Lake volunteers! 

We'd just like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you for your hard work in organizing Saturday's event! Our Girl Risingfundraiser/screening was a major success and we really appreciate all of your hard work to make it happen! We had a great turnout and were pretty close to filling the theater thanks to your efforts!

The cost for the theater rental/screening fee was $850 (with $150 of that being donated directly to Girl Rising's non-profit) and after credit card/eventbrite fees we made $1,475.06 in donations/tickets sales.

So overall with this screening, we directly donated $625.06 to Oxfam America and $150 to Girl Rising's non-profit partners! Also, by showing such a great documentary, we were able to get the word out about some of the issues surrounding girls' education and poverty and provide a priceless educational experience to our audience. 

Thank you again, and good work! We'll be in touch soon about upcoming events!
