Phillipa Soo, Anika Noni Rose, and Others Come Together in Support of the Lower Eastside Girls Club
Several powerful female actresses came together for a benefit panel in support of The Lower Eastside Girls Club this month. The Lower Eastside Girls Club NYC provides young girls with resources to further their education in STEM as well as the arts. The organization will be hosted an event called “Making Moves Making Media” to raise money for the vital programs they provide to inner-city girls during this tough time. The event was hosted by Coyote Ugly alumn Piper Perabo and Girls Club alumn Aicha Cherif.
