July 26. Women Changing the Future for Girls
Did you know the girls are the most marginalized humans on the planet? about the future of girls. Did you know that 65 million girls are not in school? Did you know there are 60 million child brides? Did you know that millions of girls are forced into prostitution, some as young as 10? And that childbirth is the leading cause of death for girls between 15-19? Join us and the NYC Leadership Council for “Because I am a Girl” for wine and an important conversation in a private home in NYC this summer. (There is no charge, and this is not a fundraiser.)
If you cannot make the July 26 Salon, we two more this summer on August 21, and Sept. 5. Seating is limited. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
Aug. 11. A Fun Festive Event in Cold Spring on the Hudson River
Our friend Deborah Goldstein, founder Driven Professionals, are inviting Tomatoes to join them for a fun, vacation packed day in the quaint and adorable Hudson River village of Cold Spring, lined with charming 19th century facades. The day offers everything you could want in a day or weekend getaway: shopping, antiquing, art galleries, dining, hiking, kayaking, and even picnicking on the shores of the peaceful Hudson! And it’s just a 75 minute train ride from Grand Central. They have a great day plan and everyone’s invited – friends, spouses, and kids too. Get all the details.
Glamping on Governors Island
A quick ferry ride from downtown Manhattan, this peaceful oasis is nestled near the hills of historic Governors Island. You’ll be surrounded by sprawling green space with unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty across the New York Harbor. It’s a retreat unlike any other in the world. Especially if you’re “glamping” in a magnificent tent with every amenity. Oh yes, Tomatoes, this is our idea of camping. Get the details.
