We hosted our second annual fundraising gala at Davio's Boston on December 6. We were thrilled to welcome more than 250 people, including five of our seven 2019 Women's Empowerment Scholarship recipients. Thanks to everyone who joined us and also those who supported us financially from afar.
Without the generosity of our supporters, we would not have made such a significant impact in our first 18 months as a foundation.
As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, The Women's Empowerment Scholarship serves to empower females by encouraging and enabling them to pursue higher education. Our foundation provides educational grants to women throughout New England while paying special attention to women entering into one of many male-dominated career paths, including, but not limited to, science, technology, engineering, finance, and law. In aiding women financially, the Women's Empowerment Scholarship team aims to propel their careers and allow them to shatter any and all glass ceilings and stereotypes.
Bailey is the President and Founder of The Women's Empowerment Scholarship. After graduating as Salutatorian from Monson High School in 2015, Bailey went on to study Finance, Communication, and Legal Studies at Bryant University. In 2019, she graduated 9th in her class with Summa Cum Laude honors. Currently, Bailey is pursuing her Juris Doctor at Boston University School of Law where she hopes to combine her undergraduate business background with legal expertise. Bailey was Miss Massachusetts Teen USA in 2014, placing in the Top 15 at the national Miss Teen USA competition. Additionally, she was a member of the New England Patriots Cheerleaders from 2016-2018, representing the Patriots at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas and Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Learn more about Bailey and her motivations by visiting the "My Story" tab.
Your generous gift helps fund our mission to support a future generation of female pioneers and leaders. Together, we can make a difference.
