The IF Girls Rise reception will be the first of its kind, showcasing challenges that young women face
today, represented by unique looks coordinated in conjunction with local fashion gurus Wil Heuser, Andre
Wilson, Colleen Clines, and Alexa Pence. Guests will experience a program directed by LGL participants,
a silent auction featuring handcrafted fascinators, and light appetizers. General admission tickets are $35, and can be purchased online prior to the event on Eventbrite.
According to Olivia Beres, high school senior at St. Francis and Co-Chair of Louisville Girls Leadership,
“The Louisville Girls IdeaFestival fosters conversations between knowledgeable speakers and innovative
young minds to tackle problems facing women today. The energetic environment highlights our metro
youth, cultivates connections, and produces attainable solutions.”
