GIRL AUTHORITY TO PARTICIPATE IN “DRESS UP 2 CURE”
RETT SYNDROME FUNDRAISER
TEAM TO WIN GIRL AUTHORITY CONCERT AT SCHOOL
Burlington, MA - Boston-based tween queens Girl Authority will participate in “Dress Up 2 Cure,” a national fundraiser for Rett Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder that predominantly affects young girls. The GA girls have been participating in “Dress Up 2 Cure” since 2007.
Girl Power 2 Cure, Inc, a Rett Syndrome non-profit, is overseeing the fundraiser called Dress Up 2 Cure (www.dressup2cure.org) On April Fools Day (April 1), school students dress up in silly costumes and bring in $1 or host a fun event, then submit a video to the site, along with how much money they raised. The school which has the most participants, most money raised, and the most creative ideas and video will win a GA show in their town (funded by Girl Power 2 Cure, Inc.).

Victims of the neurological disorder, Rett Syndrome, are unable to speak, use their hands or move normally. Many suffer from uncontrollable seizures and pain. The event was founded by Ingrid Harding, whose daughter has Rett Syndrome, with a mission of empowering girls to benefit their peers. The goals: to educate/involve them with the special-needs community and provide innovative tools and information to Rett Syndrome families.
Girl Authority is a group of girls (ages 10-15) who go to school, are Girl Scouts, cheerlead, play sports, play instruments, have fun sleepover parties and…just happen to make hit records in their spare time. The girls will perform fun-infused cover songs that kids and parents will love, as well as all-new original material full of positive messages. Intricate dance choreography and fashion-forward outfits add to the spectacle that is a Girl Authority concert. Come ready to dance and sing along to favorite hits like “Life is a Highway,” “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” and “We are Family.”
Their latest CD Road Trip is a fun collection of original songs and classic covers offering family-friendly musical fare aimed toward and performed by tweens.
