On December 8th BPWEV held the HATS OFF TO WOMEN WORKSHOP at the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce.  The event was very successful and I send a HUGE thank you to our six wonderful speakers:

Preventing Scams and Identity Theft - Mark Rizzo
Normal Memory & Aging - Kathleen Houseweart
Dealing with Challenging People - MK Mueller
Self Defense for Women - Kairee Haley
Promoting Equal Rights, Equal Pay and Equal Opportunity - Cyndi Fredricks

Our sponsors were very supportive and appreciated:

Gold sponsors - Farr Law Firm, Centennial Bank, and Morina Chmielak, Professional Travel Services.
Silver sponsors - Brookdale Senior Living and Celestial Massage and Wellness Center.

A special thank you to Natalie Bloom, Debbie Straw, Alyssa Case, Jennifer Fagenbaum, and my last minute recruit, Cyndi Fredricks. And, several other members volunteered at the event to help, and I want to recognize and express my appreciation for their help.

We worked very hard to make this a successful event. Everyone who attended had a good time, learned a great deal, and felt recharged and motivated by the valuable information they obtained from the presentations.
