EMPOWER ME CELEBRATES ITS ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN CAPE TOWN’S URBAN OASIS
On Thursday, 7 March 2019 a group of influential women joined together to celebrate Empower Me network’s one-year anniversary. Esteemed guests, delicious cocktails, live music and culinary delights; combined with the incredible spirit of feminine unity, encompassed this more-than-memorable occasion set in Cape Town’s premium 15 On Orange, Autograph Collection Hotel.
Set in one of Cape Town’s most picturesque venues, overlooking the breath-taking Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, guests arrived to uplifting beats played by DJ Anthea Scholtz and were welcomed with cocktails by Aperol, Deetlefs and The Duchess.
An array of delectable canapés, created by the hotel’s renowned executive chef, Tamsyn Wells, circulated throughout the venue.
The newly renovated Urban Oasis lounge and poolside bar area with its lush greenery was a perfect match to the Island Chic theme of the event.
Empower Me is an exclusive women’s network – the first of its kind to offer a diverse platform to empowering women in different areas of their lives. Inspiring and motivating women to become the best authentic version of themselves. This one-of-a-kind networking event gave the opportunity for multi-faceted modern females to interact with like-minded women.
In the spirit of empowerment, the esteemed guests were given the opportunity to empower other less affluent women in South Africa through donating to the non-profit organization Great Girls. This mentorship program is run by a diverse group of women in Cape Town, that aims to bridge the gap between high-school education and full-time employment for disadvantaged girls.
Guests were spoilt with the chance to win in the luxury lucky-draws. Over and above this guests went home with goodie bags filled with gifts from Caribbean Tan, Deetlefs Wine, Carolina Herrera, Chocolate by Tomes, BOS ice tea, Fairlady, True Love and Women’s Health magazines.
This influential event exceeded the expectations of the guests, leaving them with a more than spectacular evening.
A big thank you to all our sponsors, 15 on Orange Hotel for hosting us and Red Carpet Concepts for PR communications.
