WS Women Connect: Free Event February 23, 2013

February 23 will mark the third year for WS Women Connect, a wonderful FREE event that brings women together as they meet, mingle, shop, connect and learn.  The founders of Women Connect, Angela Levine and Beth Mack, created the event as a way for women to put a face to their business, talk one-on-one with potential customers and build mutually beneficial relationships.  WS Women Connect inspires and encourages the growth of small, local business.

This year's event will feature more than fifty businesses and partners... and still growing!  Ranging from service providers to retailers, this is an easy way for you to learn about, connect with and support women in the Triad.  You may be surprised to find out that your favorite business is woman owned!  Several businesses have participated every year, including Luxury Travel, Accessorize This, Reynolda Farm Market, A Step Ahead, Heavenly Cheesecakes by Becky and Winston-Salem Jazzercize.  There is a nice mix between service, selling and sampling, and there is only one business representing a business category.  Go here to see the full list of 2013 participants.

“When a woman is empowered to achieve success, she gives back exponentially to her employees, family and neighborhood. Supporting women-owned businesses not only improves our economy, it improves our community. ”  ~~ Hillary Peterson, owner of partner business Old Winston Social Club
There will be learning centers; small group workshops where you can get a little more in-depth.  Each free workshop will last 45 minutes and topics range from interior design to saving money to trying pilates to understanding social media.
Forsyth Medical Center is a natural partner for WS Women Connect, and they will be onsite with a Women's Health Center. There will be free health screenings available for blood pressure, cholesterol, bone density and body mass index.  You'll have a chance to talk about the results and get a referral if needed.    
There will be a whole room devoted to make-overs.  Whether you want a new look for your hair, your wardrobe, or your home, this room will be filled with experts ready to share their knowledge and suggest ways to make the most of your new look!
The  first 400 attendees will receive a goody bag and there will be door prizes all day.  The event will be from 9am-3pm and is taking place at The Village Inn in Clemmons.  Spend the day or spend an hour... your time will be well spent at this one-of-a-kind event.
