TRURO – A special soiree celebrating women is taking place in Truro this Friday.
The third annual Women’s Day Soiree will be held at the Holiday Inn on Prince Street on March 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. The event is hosted by the Central Nova Women’s Resource Centre and is in honour of International Women’s Day, which is Saturday.
“It’s a celebration of women … and women helping and empowering women. Women are in the workplace, having families and doing it all now, but are still fighting inequality,”
Michaela MacLachlan, administrative co-ordinator of the women’s resource centre, told the Truro Daily News.
“It also gives women a place to come together and have fun. There are still a lot of women who don’t know there is an International Women’s Day and a lot of people still don’t know (the women’s centre) exists.”
The local event will feature a variety of opportunities including socializing, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, makeup application by Bella Santa, jewelry, a 50/50 draw and door prizes, education on the women’s centre’s services and programs and a
‘sexy or sensible’ shoe contest.
Women can enter the Elegant Steps shoe contest by paying $5 and wearing their specially selected shoe on a catwalk, which will be judged for prizes. To participate in the contest, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 897-8003.
There is no cost for the women’s soiree, but donations at the door will be accepted.
