Galentine's Day: How to Make Friends as Professional Women
Neyborly Old Town

While it might seem tough to maintain and cultivate friendships as a professional woman, the joy that stems from spending time with a close companion is immeasurable. Sometimes you just need a friendly shoulder to cry on when things turn sour. Or an ear to share your oh-so-exciting job news with!

Too often we assume we don't have enough time in the day to be with friends. But that's what makes Galentine's Day so special — it gives you a full 24 hours to celebrate the friendships that make your life so wonderful.

"Galentine's Day: How to Make Friends as Professional Women" is a festive opportunity to really honor the power of friendships. Bring your pals to honor each other over free food and drink - we'll have boozy and non-boozy drinks available.

There will be an array of local, successful women speaking on a panel that focuses on the importance of friendships while toiling away in the working world. They'll talk of ways to cultivate friendships, and how to avoid the misconception that you can't make friends as an adult. There'll also be a fun ribbon activity that helps unite introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between. As well as a Valentine's Day card station - write up a message of love for your bestie and we'll stamp and send it for ya! Plus! Proceeds from this event will be going to Rose Haven - a local day shelter for women and children.

Join us today to snag a seat amongst a bunch of amazing women!
