Mackenzie Davis to Host Virtual Fundraiser for Scholarship Nonprofit One Girl Can
Mackenzie Davis, known for her roles on Halt and Catch Fire and Terminator: Dark Fate, is set to emcee a virtual live fundraiser gala, titled Alone, Together: A No-Gala, on June 4 at 6 p.m. PT to benefit One Girl Can, a nonprofit that provides scholarships and mentorship to female students in Kenya and refurbishes schools throughout the country.
To date, the group, which seeks to break cycles of poverty and impact gender equality, has provided scholarships (which include room and board) to 865 Kenyan girls, with 550 girls currently in school. Davis says that — because the group had to cancel its annual in-person benefit last April due to the coronavirus outbreak — the virtual fundraiser is critical for making sure the girls’ educations aren’t interrupted.
