A Newport Beach couple has pledged to give $5 million to Girls Inc. of Orange County, which would be the largest donation the charity has received.
Organizers thanked Sue and Ralph Stern at Girls Inc.'s annual Gratitude Luncheon on May 18.
Sue Stern is a longtime member of the Girls Inc. board. The national nonprofit has its Orange County center in Costa Mesa and hosts programs designed to help 4- to 18-year-old girls build confidence.
The donation is slated to go to the Eureka! program, which exposes girls to career paths in math, science and technology.
