Women are being invited to an event for personal development, inspiration and business at the Executive Inn Hotel in Coquitlam on June 1.
Tickets are selling now for Glow, which is part seminar, part trade show - as well as a glamourous party - and the brainchild of Mandi Sellers.
"Not just an evening out, Glow is a movement toward becoming more positive, successful, healthy and happy. We call this achieving your "radiance" - inside and out," says founder of the charitable initiative Mandi Sellers. "And what better time to announce the event than in time for International Women's Day on March 8?"
This is an event for women from across the Lower Mainland, including the Tri-Cities, Surrey, Langley, Maple Ridge, Burnaby and beyond. About 200 women are expected, including professionals, business owners and mothers. Glow will welcome them all with the red carpet treatment, complete with an on-site "paparazzi-style" photographer, and a chance to win a makeover with a free outfit from Bellissima and other prizes.
The event's tradeshow floor will offer a mix of exciting exhibitor tables and wares for sale, along with a silent auction and seminar series on topics that include personal growth, love and sex, health and body image. Well-known experts from these fields will present 30-minute, engaging sessions intended to inspire and empower attendees.
Speakers include Dr. Ali Zentner, who will speak on a Girlfriend's Guide to Health, Ted Kuntz, author and Tri-City News columnist, who will speak on Finding the Peace and Joy Within, and life and intimacy coach Kim Amani, who will speak on Women, Life, Love and Sex.
A martini bar, complimentary hors d'oeuvres will round out the evening, along with a deejay who will open up the dance floor for a let-your-hair-down dance party celebration. The night will end with a complimentary swag bag for each attendee.
Sellers, a Coquitlam resident. mother of two girls and owner of Com-Tech Learning Solutions, got the idea for Glow in a dream that was also a personal revelation.
"Not only did I want to evolve myself to be like those women in my dream - in everything from my career and family life to health and image, but I wanted to help other women do the same," says Sellers, who then put together a group of women volunteers with similar goals and dubbed them Achieve Radiance Events and Communications. Glow is their first event.
Glow is also a charitable initiative, with proceeds going to the BC Cancer Agency, focusing on cancers that affect women, and Tri-City Transitions, a charitable organization providing help to women and families who have been impacted by violence and abuse.
Admission is $55. For more information on the event, to register or to become a sponsor, see www.achieveradiance.com
