During the weekend of the Ed Block Courage Awards Gala we hosted our second annual Courageous Giving Luncheon at the Baltimore Renaissance Harborplace Hotel. We host this event every year as a special part of the award gala weekend to honor the youth in residence at the Baltimore Ravens Courage House and bring awareness to the true purpose of the Courage Awards.
In addition to meeting dozens of amazing people from around the country we were also blessed with the opportunity to join with the wives and mothers of the Courage Award recipients once again to create handmade gifts for the youth of the Ravens Courage House. We were also able to educate many of the NFL wives on exactly how they can get involved with their local courage house, as all but a few of the teams in the league do have an assigned charity they support through the Ed Block Courage Awards Foundation Network.
The Courage Awards Foundation recently posted a video of the awards gala to their website and you can see the feature about Empower Girls Inc at the 1:42:40 mark. We will continue to share photos and videos of our amazing experience on our Facebook and Instagram pages, so be sure to follow us if you’re not already! Updates for Next year’s Courageous Giving events will start to roll out in late summer, so if you didn’t get a chance to be a part of this year’s festivities, please make sure to stay in touch with us about how to get involved in 2019.
