About this Event


Due to the extreme nature of the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve come to accept that gatherings in large groups may happen for another year. However, our commitment to host the most important event of the year IWANTtoBE presented by Beedie Foundation cannot be put on hold.

Why a virtual event?

We can’t look at gender as a side issue nor as a distraction from the current crisis. What we do now will affect the lives of so many women and girls for years to come. The future of the 500 girls we sponsor, mentor, and build schools for depends entirely on our generosity. We cannot stop our fundraising efforts now.

That’s why our team has recalibrated and are delighted to host our first ever virtual fundraiser, completely online: Alone, Together: A No-Gala, gala, presented by Beedie Foundation.


6:00pm – Welcome

6:10pm – Mackenzie Davis interview with 2 One Girl Can scholarship students

6:25pm – Keynote from CEO and Founder, Lotte Davis

6:40pm – Live scholarship auction

7:00pm – Online silent auction closes

7:00pm – Special musical performance by Rainsford

Plus, follow us on instagram or sign up for our email newsletter for more exciting event announcements.


Casual, formal, or something in between. Choose your own adventure!


The online event will not be ticketed so everyone is welcome!

However, if you feel that from the money you’ll save on taxis, babysitters, and cocktails, etc. you could consider a donation to help support One Girl Can's ongoing projects, we would be most appreciative.

All donations of $99 or more will receive a gift from AG Hair featuring their latest hair products, plus a 12oz bottle of the new Hands Free Hand Sanitizer Gel (total value $95).

100% of all donations and proceeds from the event will go directly to funding scholarships for girls living in extreme poverty in Kenya
