Girls Rock Charleston! is holding a family-friendly fall festival fundraiser on November 19th to benefit the organization’s camp this coming summer at Ashley Hall.

Girls Rock Charleston! is a nonprofit organization that empowers girls and trans youth through music education, DIY media, and creative collaboration. The organization will hold its second session of camp in summer 2012 for girls ages nine to sixteen. During the camp, the girls will learn to play an instrument of their choice, engage in educational workshops, form a band with other campers, and write a song which they will perform at an end-of-camp showcase.  Girls Rock Charleston! showcased 34 totally rocking campers in 2011 and will expand its capacity this summer.

In order to raise funds for the 2012 summer camp, from 12 to 4 p.m., the Girls Rock Charleston! crew are proud to present a slew of local bands that will be jamming out at Brittlebank Park. The lineup for the event consists of: The Royal Tinfoil, The Local Honeys, and Britt Becktell. There will also be DIY craft booths by The Rose Knot, Surcee Press, and other local craftspeople and artists; face painting; a make-your-own kazoo station; corn hole; and a cupcake walk.

The aim of the event is to build community, enjoy music by awesome local women, and encourage the endless fun of DIY crafts/music culture.
