Back again this year to inspire women is the 3rd Annual Women Inspiring Women’s Purple Gown event and will be our first Fundraiser to benefit #BriStrong (see below for information)!

Our theme this year is “Bridging the Gap” and our intention is for these amazing women to help move our audience to see beyond a “moment” and help them overcome and move past some of trials they may already have experienced in life or prepare them with strength for what they may be encountering in life at a later date. Our hope is that after this event, more women will step out with their gifts and talents and inspire the each other to do the same.

Each year key women who have overcome obstacles, trials and tribulations along their path are invited to share their stories of survival, perseverance and personal growth with our audience. These stories are very moving but also inspire the women in attendance to see more than the hurtles and struggles they have and will face in their lives to see hope. This evening fills them the hope and courage to overcome these circumstances and gives them the drive to achieve their own personal and professional successes.

As mentioned above, this year’s event will give back a portion of the proceeds to #BriStrong. BriStrong was created to assist Brianna Goble, a young teenager in our Hernando County community that was a victim of Gun Violence in October. She was shot in the face by a former boyfriend at the age of 18. She survived the attack but recently found out that she will have to undergo surgery to repair her neck and restore her mouth. Your support will help greatly to assist the family during this time.

This year’s event will take place on June 23, 2018 at Silverthorn Country Club from 6:30 – 10:00 pm. The event does include dinner at tickets are $40 each.
