I’m pleased to say that I’m a proud Navy wife and I’m also a small business owner who truly enjoys giving back to my community whenever possible. Recently I’ve been talking with some of my other friends in business about how there is a definite need to bring women together to have fun, make new friends, and to showcase our products and services in relaxed atmosphere. Together we came up with the idea of hosting a monthly Gal Pal Gathering.
The Perfect Place hosted the kick of event last Friday and I decided to incorporate it with my annual Bewitching Hour Halloween party. We all had a great time and a lot of wonderful ideas were discussed for future events.
What is it? A monthly gathering of gal pals that are interested in having fun, making new friends, and getting to know local businesses in the community.
How did Gal Pal Gatherings get started? We (local business owners) wanted to reach out to the women of our community to let them know who we are and what type of services and products we can provide. More importantly we wanted to create a way for women to take time out from daily stress and have some fun while getting to know others in the community.
Who puts on the gatherings? Gal Pal Gatherings are hosted by various business owners or by “gals” who have a fun activity/event they want to share with others.
How can I attend? Gal Pal Gatherings are by invitation only you must be invited by the host for the evening or be on your friend’s guest list. Once you have attended a gathering you will receive a personal invitation for future events and are welcome to invite your friends too.
Is there a fee? No, Gal Pal Gatherings are FREE. However, a fee may apply to partake in special events happening that evening for example pedicures, custom t-shirt making etc. (this information will be provided in the invitation and participation is always optional)
Will refreshments be provided? Refreshments may be provided depending on who the host is for the evening. Other times guests may be asked to bring an appetizer to share.
What type of gatherings will there be? Each month the gathering will be created around a theme. For example, glitz n’ gloss, cookie exchange, swap parties etc.
Stay tuned to see what we're planning for November.
