RECAP: The Pink Event® 2014 Breaks Records!

Attendees enjoy the ultimate girls' day out! 
The Pink Event® 2014 last Sunday broke records when it turned the atrium and ballrooms of the DoubleTree by Hilton in Columbia, Md., into the “ultimate girls’ day out.”

With more than 260 attendees and 50 women-focused exhibitorswho sold everything from handmade jewelry and figurines to high-quality kitchen wares and organic hair products—the women’s expo achieved its goal of celebrating women-owned businesses, encouraging empowerment, and promoting breast cancer awareness.

Timed to celebrate women during National Women’s History month, The Pink Event had six expert speakers, who offered mini-talks about profiting from Facebook, embracing emotional journeys, living life by design, the best cleansing options, detoxing the mind, and mastering business success.

“This is my first time at The Pink Event and I like it,” said Keyetta McGhee from Windsor Mill, Md. “There is good networking here.” First-time attendees Stacia Martin, Joy Etheridge, Elena Gonzales and Crystal Davis (who also won a door prize from The Pampered Chef) exclaimed the event “is over the top awesome fun!”

Select ticket proceeds for the expo will be donated to Tigerlily Foundation, a Reston, Va.-based nonprofit organization that raises cancer awareness for younger awareness.

For several attendees who are breast cancer patients or survivors, the focus on breast cancer was a welcome spotlight to an issue close to their hearts.

“This was an overall success for our goal of having fun and fostering a women-focused community,” said The Pink Event Founder Tamika Josephs-Smith. “Expect next year’s event to be even bigger and better!”
