Thankful.org in conjunction with Tavern On The Green, hosted a luncheon for 120 people to celebrate International Women’s Day, to support, honor and celebrate women from all backgrounds and all walks of life. Working with local shelters that provide refuge to women who have been victims of violence, current residents were invited to lunch in an effort to remind them that they are worthy of celebration and to acknowledge their journey.
The celebrated women were pampered with makeovers courtesy of Glam Squad. The looks were completed with apparel donated from Romeo + Juliet and empowering words from Donna D’ Cruz who started the day by leading the group in meditation. The crowd was also enlightened and entertained by the keynote speakers, Khaliya and Biet Simkin. Victoria Canal gave an astounding vocal medley accompanied by piano just before, True Rodriguez gave a spirit rising poetry performance to end the event.
The energy in the room was electric and everyone left feeling inspired to dig deeper into their inner vault of Thankful Moments to appreciate the little things. Everyone was moved to flower the Thankful Tree with the logo notepads filled with handwritten notes of what they were thankful for. This was truly a thankful moment.
