Winston-Salem WomenConnect will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Village Inn Event Center, 6205 Ramada Drive in Clemmons. It is being billed as “a unique experience where event attendees can meet, learn and shop from businesses owned by women in the community.” More than 60 businesses will take part, offering unique items and food for sale.
WomenConnect is free, open to the public and designed for attendees who are looking to build relationships, broaden their knowledge and engage in interactive activities with local, women-owned businesses.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for women of all ages to spend the day meeting, learning, shopping and enjoying time together,” said Beth Mack, who organized the event with Angela Levine. “Whether attendees want to update their wardrobes, homes or look, our experts in clothing, accessories, home furnishings, makeup and hair will help.”
Free health screenings will be available thanks to partner organization Forsyth Medical Center. Attendees can also take advantage of free 45-minute seminars on a range of topics. Other event partners include First Community Bank, GreenPoint Insurance, Forsyth Magazines, Flow Honda, Nu Expression, Village Inn Event Center and Lindsay & Gardner CPAs.
“What makes this event unique is exclusivity in each business category. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of different types of vendors – everything from counseling to travel to yoga,” said Levine.
