International Women’s Day is this Friday and there are events happening around the globe to celebrate. Locally, we’ve got “Shop Local – Women Supporting Women” which not only promotes the success of female entrepreneurs in the city, but also the city’s economy. WSW was created by two Yorkville merchants – Lilla Balint and Shellie Willms as a way to mutually support each other and their fellow shop owners. You too, can join in on the love fest (and shop fest!) on Saturday, March 9th at the Park Hyatt. I suggest arriving before 12 pm to hear the honoree presentation featuring eLUXE owner, Joanna Track, a fantastic example of a true Canadian success story.
See you there and get ready to shop for a good cause as 15% of proceeds go to Dress for Success!
