Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a non-profit music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.
 
Launched in 2005, the organization is entering its second decade of uniting girls across greater New York City in a shared mission to ROCK* with a special event and fundraising benefit December 2nd at Roulette in Brooklyn.
 
Featuring live music and dancing, DJ’s, and additional surprise guests. Food will be provided by Olivia Cooks for You plus beer, wine, and signature cocktails, including a special concoction made with Tito’s Homemade Vodka. Guests will also have the chance to win awesome raffle prizes, including a wine tasting class for 4 at Some Good Wine. More fabulous raffle prizes will be announced soon.
 
All proceeds from the event will be used to give girls, young women, and trans youth from low- and moderate-income households in NYC the opportunity to attend our Girls Rock! Camp and other music and mentoring programs.
 
The Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls (WMRC) Fairness Fund allows WMRC to provide scholarships and sliding scale tuition to more than half of their campers annually, and offer all community- and school-based programs free-of charge to participants.
