A famous woman had an intimate lunch with about 900 of her friends at the CenturyLink Center Friday, the annual Lunch With The Girls, a fundraiser supporting Girls Inc. of Omaha.
This year's keynote speaker was Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton. She spoke to the crowd about the struggles her grandmother faced growing up and about the need to encourage girls everywhere.
"We need girls participating 100 percent in every field and every aspect and also feeling like we heard earlier that they can be girls, that there's no stigma to being successful or building a robot just as there shouldn't be any stigma to both playing softball and being a model."
Girls Inc. has two facilities in Omaha. The organization offers a wide range of activities and support to girls of all ages.
