NEW YORK, NY – The Ms. Foundation for Women announced its first-ever Gloria Awards After Party, to follow its annual gala.

                        New York, NY 10065

The After Party follows the foundation’s annual fundraising gala. With a more affordable ticket price than the gala ($75 in advance and $100 at the door), the After Party allows more people to support the foundation’s work and meet leading feminists like Ms. Foundation President and CEO Teresa C. Younger and founding mother Gloria Steinem. The event will feature DJ Brenda Black, dancing, an interactive photo booth, open bar, chocolates by sweetriot, a fantastic raffle, giveaways, and a chance to learn more about the Foundation’s leading fight for women’s rights.

“The After Party is part celebration, part networking event,” said Younger. “It’s a chance for feminists of different ages and walks of life to come together.”

Tickets to the After Party can be purchased in advance online for $75 and at the door for $100. For more information or to purchase tickets: https://forwomen.org/afterparty.
