Lady Gamecock coach and three-time Olympic gold medalist Dawn Staley and Ms. South Carolina -- United States 2011 Laura Holley will offer motivational speeches at the Second annual Girl Power event sponsored by the Family Resource Center Saturday from 3 to 11 p.m. at the Health Resource Center at 124 Battleship Road in Camden.

Staley, known for her tough love approach to coaching, said, “[Coaching] is about relationships and discipline.  I truly believe that the disciplined person can do anything….With that, I want to build a family atmosphere that includes both the staff and the student-athletes….We want to work for one another;  we  want to prepare people to be successful.”

The event is $5 per person and open to girls and women of all ages. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Girls under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Various age appropriate activities will be offered for girls and adults. Workshops on personal safety, relaxation, internet safety, teens and alcohol, and other topics are scheduled.  Security will be provided by Camden Police Department.

“The Family Resource Center offers free public education and counseling services for victims of violence and abuse,” said Rosalyn Moses, the Center’s executive director. “The Girl Power event focuses on strong, healthy girls who are confident to speak their own minds and know what a positive relationship looks and feels like.”

For more information about the event call the Family Resource Center at 425-4357.
