The inaugural Women’s Empowerment networking event, organized by the Deb Sarsany Team at The Real Estate Group, attracted vendors from as far as Bloomington and more than 75 female business owners and entrepreneurs.
“We were so pleased with the turnout last Thursday at Erin’s Pavilion,” said Ded. “We had women attending from across the region, which is fantastic for its first year. There were so many brilliant booths from Illinois Women in Leadership ad Janet Cook of Vivacious Personal Coaching to Cheri Plummer of Lee O’Keefe Insurance Agency and Kate Spencer Photography. The businesses were varied and interesting,” said Deb.
More than 25 door prizes were won on the night from a photo session and Springfield Jr. Blues tickets to an umbrella and gift certificate for Cooper’s Hawk. “What the evening proved is that there is a strong appetite for women to get out and network, to develop new relationships, and most importantly support one another,” said Deb. “We saw a gap in the market for such an event and the success of the evening demonstrates the need for more women’s only networking opportunities here in Springfield.
