Wrap-Up: Amazing Ladies at The Pink Event® 2013

Ladies lined up to register and grab swag bags
before heading into The Pink Event® 2013.
On a recent Sunday afternoon, ladies from the Washington-Baltimore region converged on The DoubleTree by Hilton to enjoy the ultimate girls' day out at The Pink Event® 2013.

Many attendees arrived early at the women-focused expo to secure a limited-supply swag bag and get the first look at the great shopping from women-focused exhibitors. They inspected the many beauty, bath, clothing, fashion, and cosmetic products as well as other special services.

Monokia Nance, of Baltimore, says she jumped at an invite to The Pink Event from her sister. "The networking, of course, is what I really enjoyed today," she said.

And attendees showed up to The Pink Event's speakers lounger to hear great tips on creating a healthier lifestyle from Delayna Keller-Watkins (RN, BSN), natural hair secrets from Susan Peterkin-Bishop, and sneak peeks of an upcoming women's conference from Vanessa Elam.
Tigerlily Foundation Founder Maimah Karmo spoke about her
battle with breast cancer and new life purpose. Tigerlily
Foundation was the official charity partner for The Pink Event.
 Attendees also heard the empowering story from Tigerlily Foundation founder Maimah Karmo about her battle with breast cancer and new purpose for life.  The Reston, Va.-based nonprofit organization, which educates, advocates for, and provides hands-on services and support to young women (ages 15 to 40) with breast cancer, was the official charity partner for The Pink Event.

Even a few men showed up. Gary McNeil, of Baltimore, came with his wife, Annette, sitting in on a speaker session with makeup guru Misha Zabrina Sanders. "The event is very well-organized," Mr. McNeil said.

One of the more inspiring attendees was Kellee Southern of Silver Spring, Md. Southern was recently diagnosed with breast cancer in January and is through her second round of treatment. "I heard about The Pink Event on Facebook and I knew I had to be here," she said, upbeat and decked out in a bright pink bandanna.

"I love that there's so much going on, and it's good to see all the happy smiling faces," said Southern, who brought her daughter Angelique along for a special mother-daughter afternoon. 
The Pink Event would like to thank the many attendees who showed up for a day of fun as well as our exhibitors and sponsors that made the event possible.  Several main sponsors and partners for The Pink Event 2013 included DoubleTree by Hilton, The Umbrella Syndicate, and Pixalated Photobooth.
