To me, when I first heard of girl up, I thought “Hey, that’s what I say to my dog when I want her to stand up”. I soon realized, that while this is a valuable skill for my dog to have, there are much more important meanings to this phrase. I’m talking the Girl Up Fundraiser, whose purpose was to empower women all around the world.
My older brother once voluntarily attended a Zac Brown Band concert. I think the thing was held in Zac Brown’s barn or something. He enjoyed it, however, I think Zach would agree that the Girl Up fundraiser was way better.
The fundraiser was beautifully put together and featured musical performances from Isabella W. and even corporate monster and student body president Daniel S. came down to give a crazy cello performance. What was great about the event though was the money raised and the lives changed.
