Tea Time for Montgomery Women

Join me at Montgomery Women’s Awards Reception and Power Tea on Sunday, March 8, 3:00-5:00 in the afternoon at the Mansion at Strathmore. As chair of this non-partisan organization, I can say with confidence that the tea is one of the county’s best networking opportunities for women. Our membership includes many of the county’s most influential women in business, education, civic affairs, government and politics. We bring together women from all cultural backgrounds to advance common interests and support outstanding women in their quest for positions of power and influence.

This year’s tea, hosted by honorary chair Congresswoman Donna Edwards, will recognize two outstanding women. Yvette Butler, founder and executive director of GapBuster Learning Center, will receive the Rising Star Award while the Shining Star Award will go to Carol Trawick, president of the Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation. These two serve as examples of what successful women are all about.

You are welcome to attend this event even if you are not a member for a cost of $25 at the door. Or consider joining Montgomery Women and take part in information briefings, leadership forums and networking events throughout the year. I look forward to seeing you at the tea.
