December’s Women Grow hosted by Social Media Unicorn was an all together magical experience! The growing entrepreneurial community was in full force to mix, mingle, and help collect unwrapped toys for That Adopted Girl, a charity benefiting children in the foster care system. The Holiday Spirit was in the air!
The enchanted evening started with drinks and hor d’oeuvres, (can’t forget to mention the best brownies ever tasted) while guests chatted the night away. Our special guest Juliana Whitney, Founder of That Adopted Girl, educated peers and shared more about her incredible charity. Based in Las Vegas, this passionate, empowered non-for-profit was created to inspire and improve the lives of the foster children in America. Their value T.H.R.I.V.E. (Transparency, Honor, Responsibility, Initiative, Validation, and Enthusiasm) had introduced an outstanding kind of entrepreneurial leadership, thousands have loved supporting.
As the festive night continued, a special surprise guest walked through the door shortly after the party began. Can you guess who it was? SANTA! Good Old Saint Nick posed for pictures, judged our Ugly Sweater Contest, and spread holiday cheer all around Wayne Newton’s Casa De Shenandoah Visitors Center!
The ugly sweater contest winner was provided a stocking full of goodies for their impressive Hanukkah sweater, and a raffle was held for those who provided a gift to That Adopted Girl where another gift was given to one lucky guest who gave back. The spirit of giving is the most precious gift of all. The joy that filled the room was captivating and contagious.
Laughter and smiles from cheek to cheek were had by all.
Just leaves curiosity of, what will January be like?
