  • About the event

    Let's toast to nearly fourteen years of empowering young women! We invite you to celebrate with us that our doors are still open, we've relaunched our 1-on-1 mentor program and we’re still providing free prom dresses to young women in need! We believe that young women have the power to create their own “happily ever after” when given the proper tools! Hope is the magic potion needed to break the cycle of poverty holding our youth back from their full potential.

    This year we want to capture the spirit of classic Fairy Tales, as childhood is certainly a magical time, but unfortunately not everyone has a safe and happy experience growing up. That's why it is so important to raise awareness and funds for our services like our Discover Your Inner Warrior program, which helps young adults with employment, life skills, free therapy and so much more!

    Our founder Bee Nguyen, handed the baton to Dia Parker, alum of Athena's Warehouse programs in 2019. Through the pandemic Dia has been carrying on the mission of educating, uplifting, and inspiring young women.

    We invite you to join us and raise a glass to a bright and bold future!


    Why should you sponsor?

    We believe that no student should have to choose between academic success and their mental health. You can help us bridge the gap and provide free therapy so that no girl has to feel alone. Can we count on you to stand up for young women's mental health needs today?

    Dia Parker, Executive Director Athena's Warehouse Inc. 2019-Present

    I've dedicated my life to empowering women and girls, as the leader of Athena's Warehouse. I was first introduced to Athena's Warehouse as a teenager looking for a free prom dress through the Prom Dress Project and then during my senior year I attended the weekly workshops offered after school at my high school. It was the first time anyone had asked my 17 year old self about my feelings and my dreams for my life. In the workshops I was introduced to yoga and meditation, which, when my family faced housing displacement during my junior year of college pushing back my college graduation timeline, I persevered by using the mental health tools I'd learned and graduated in 2017. That year I returned as a volunteer, working hand in hand with the founder until becoming the Executive Director in 2019. Now I work one on one with 50 girls each semester, learning their stories, and making them feel heard and seen, as I introduce them to therapy, yoga, and role models who are strong women of color so that they can make their dreams a reality too. 

    I have a M.A. in Social Innovation from  Agnes Scott College & B.S. in Biology from Oglethorpe University.
