Girls Night Out | What People Are Saying…

Girls Night Out International Women's Day Newmarket

 

So what is Girls Night Out all about?  Each year, the NewRoads Automotive Group along with many local vendors invite the women of York Region to join them in celebration of International Women’s Day.  Here’s what they’re saying…

 

 

Girls’ Night Out is a great way to bring together women in the community to celebrate International Women’s Week. Women entrepreneurs and an engaged corporate sponsor – NewRoads Automotive Group, coming together to support an amazing community benefit organization, Women’s Centre of York Region, make for a perfect combination to inspire change.
– Kirsten Eastwood, Executive Director Women’s Centre of York Region

Thank-you so much for having me and my team member Kim be part of this Girls Night Out and introduce the Scentsy and Velata Line.  I was very impressed at how it was all done, I love the fact that we were able to give back to the community and I really enjoyed meeting so many new and exciting people (other vendors as well a new customers), it means a lot to have someone give the opportunity to be able to show how much hard work we put into our business.  You rock Kelly.  Can’t wait to do it again next year.
– Tracy and Kim

I attended my first ever Girls Night out on Thursday, March 6th, 2014.  I started the evening with the intention of making many contacts in order to grow my business and I was very pleased to be able to do. After meeting Kelly Broome-Plumley and many of the other truly inspirational women that organized and attended the event, I finished the evening feeling inspired by how a few woman can make a huge difference. The atmosphere, the experience and learning about the Woman’s Centre and the need for ongoing support truly touched me.  I have opened my head and my heart to look for ways that I too can contribute in the future.  I look forward to next year’s event with great enthusiasm.
Thank you again for a remarkable evening.

Gabby and I would like to sincerely thank you for inviting us to your 4th annual International Women’s Day event. Both of us had a great time and Gabby really enjoyed talking to so many people. The food and wine were wonderful and I bought a fabulous Stella and Dot necklace for a song on the silent auction. YEA! I really appreciate the hard work you put into last night’s function but especially the recognition for me and Gabby. I was very humbled by your kind words. You have raised Gabby’s profile in Newmarket and York Region and we thank you for all your support throughout the Olympics and onward. All the best.
– Rhonda

This is an integral part of International Women’s Day. It’s all about learning that women can and do support each other and setting an example for the next generation. With love and gratitude,

My sincere congratulations on your very successful and inspirational Girls Night Out event on Thursday, March 6th, 2014! Personally and professionally, I was so excited to be a part of this incredible Community Event to  inspire women to succeed. The Women’s Centre of York Region will be an amazing opportunity to give women a place to feel empowered, boost confidence and comfort in their roles, and to utilize other women as resources to grow. I was so impressed with the turn-out of women in the community. It certainly reflects the energy and need for connection. Thank you for your insight, vision, passion and energy to bring it all forward and and helping build momentum for other communities. It was a rewarding evening. What a success!!

The Mary Kay team was delighted to support the 4th Girls Night Out.  The evening is a reminder of the power of women; the support we offer to each other, the creativity and entrepreneurial skills we bring to the table and the pleasure we have sharing an evening laughing and socializing.  Networking for a good cause and reaching out to women in need is always a privilege and you can always count on Mary Kay to be present.

Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of the Girl’s Night Out event again this year at New Road Chevrolet in support of International Women’s Day.  As you know this was my second year as a vendor at the event.  Last year was an amazing event that allowed me to meet some wonderful, inspirational and dedicated women from our community and this year was no exception.  It is truly a FUN relaxed environment which made it so easy to connect with the women who attended and answer all of their beauty questions.  My favourite part is chatting with everyone and giving them free samples of lipstick, perfume and skincare.   The fact there there is no selling pressure is great feature.  The best feature of all is helping the Women’s Centre of York Region who do such amazing work for Women in need and it is wonderful feeling to assist them in any way I can.  AVON is the Company for Women and your event is a perfect fit. Thank you again and see you next year.
