We would like to present a special shoutout to Rico Frederick for being an awesome MC at this past weekend’s annual gala, “Women on the Rise: Gender Equality in Global Development.” Thanks to Rico and our fabulous attendees that night, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal. His fantastic slam poetry kept the night alive and inspired us all. Rico, We better see you again next year. No excuses.
