Me 4 Mars 2016, Shoqata Shqiptaro-Amerikane e Grave e Zonës së Chicagos (AAWAGC) pati kënaqësinë të organizonte mbrëmjen e parë të saj në nderim të Ditës Ndërkombëtare të Grave. Mbi 800 femra krenare, kurajoze dhe te suksesshme Shqiptare u bashkuan me ne në këtë mbremje, dhe ndihmuan që të bëjmë një ndryshim. Të gjitha të ardhurat dhe fondet e mbledhura nga kjo mbrëmje do të përdoren për të realizuar misionin tonë për fuqizimin dhe ndihmen e komunitetin tonë Shqiptar!

Përzemërsisht falenderojme të gjithë femrat Shqiptare që morën pjesë në këtë mbrëmje dhe mbështesin misionin tonë. Eshtë kënaqësi të kesh në një dhomë mbi 800 femra me prejardhje nga të gjitha trevat Shqiptare: Shqiperia, Kosova, Mali i Zi, Prespa, Manastiri, Struga, Ohri, Kercova e te tjerea. Gjithashtu morën pjesë dhe disa mikesha nga Greqia, Maqedonia, Siria, Palestina, dhe Pakistani.

Një falenderim i veçantë për këngëtaret e talentuara dhe plot energji Poni, dhe Genta Xhaferri që krijuan një atmosferë të mrekullueshme në ketë mbrëmje.
