I’m always happy to support local women in business; it truly is a passion of mine. I believe if women support women, there is nothing we cannot do.
That’s why I was so happy I was able to showcase local Mother’s Day gift ideas on Breakfast Television with Joanne Vrakas this morning. All these amazing gift ideas will be ready for you on May 9th at Shopping From The Heart! There are so many great gift ideas for YOU, for your mamas, friends, teachers, birthday gifts…
Women are such good multi-taskers, so I know this event has that appeal to it, but I want ALL women to be pampered and celebrate a night out as well. That’s why we have a spa lounge from Curage Spa, a photo booth from Kreative Memories Photography, PLUS amazing food from Cavallero’s Kirkland, 3 Soeurs, The Coookie Twins, and Snapcakes! Oh, and we will also have drinks, coffee and tea.
This Thursday night, May 9th, come out for a fabulous evening, support our local hospital, support our local women in business and celebrate!
