SARASOTA - A Suncoast organization aimed at empowering girls hosted its 25th anniversary luncheon Thursday at the Ritz Carlton.
Zandy Sanders was honored by Girls Inc. as the Girl of the Year, and Lisa Walsh got the "She Knows Where She is Going" award.
All the girls we spoke with carried with them a message of empowerment. "Girls can be strong too, and boys are not the only ones who are strong,” said Cecily Wood-Barron.
Girls Inc. of Sarasota County says their main mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold.
