The theme of the event was Flats to Platforms…Walking in the Path of Inspirational Women. The Decorations Committee, chaired by Rebecca Ellis, created beautiful floral centerpieces using colorful platform stilettos atop tiered pillows tied with orange ribbon. Each of the 175 attendees received a theme-inspired gift to take home, as well as goodie bags donated by various retailers and spas. Three large Gift Baskets were given out as door prizes with a retail value of more than $600 each. Ellie Lofaro of Heart, Mind & Soul Ministries, was the featured guest speaker and left brunch attendees feeling appreciated and inspired.
