Inaugural SheBelongs Gala
Y’all we did it! You wouldn’t believe how excited we were to welcome everybody on Friday, September 28th at WeWork Clearfork. To the ones who had been with us since the beginning-as well as those who were just getting to know us for the first time….cheers! September 28, 2018 marked the first SheBelongs Charity Gala, an annual tradition in which we hope to recognize and aid charities serving our local Fort Worth community. This year we chose to honor the Ladder Alliance. Ladder Alliance is a remarkable organization that serves to empower low-income women and victims of domestic violence by providing them with the tools to lead self-reliant, successful, and independent lives. Based in Fort Worth, they serve 3 to 400 women annually and directly impact lives here within our wonderful city. We’re honored to be here serving such a valuable mission and are thankful for the support SheBelongs and Ladder Alliance has received. We encouraged our guests to take a moment with the incredible advocates in the crowd to learn more about what they can do to get involved.
Established on April 13, 2018 over brunch, SheBelongs was created to unify the female community of Fort Worth. We come from different walks of life but have a goal in common: to bring women together and foster an amazing community that’s been desired and needed for so long. Our goal is for women to connect and empower one another – we rise by lifting others! We love that every member is unique and we encourage each and every one of you to be yourself – raw & unfiltered! This inspires genuity and in turn provides the best opportunity for support in professional networks and more importantly…meaningful friendships. As each month has passed, our Shebelongs family continues to grow and our bond continues to become stronger.
SheBelongs FW strives to hold at least 2 events per month and we encourage you all to join our online community on Facebook and Instagram where we share uplifting quotes, weekly happenings in Fort Worth, and feature local boss babes! If you have any questions about our group, please feel free to message us!
2018 Gala Sponsors.
First of all, a HUGE thank you to WeWork Clearfork for not only providing an amazing space but all of the beverages. Thank you to Local Foods Kitchen, Eatzi’s Market and Bakery, Blue Mesa Grill, Funky Town Donuts and Moving Real Fruit for providing the exceptional food and dessert. Additionally, thank you to our decor sponsors – Balloons Wow and Memories Bound Floral.
Without their effort and faith our Gala would not have been such a success.
We would love to also thank the four wonderful women for participating in our Speaker panel. These women in their own unique way represent the traits that SheBelongs Fort Worth hopes to cultivate within our community. Strength, Courage, Intelligence, Spunk, and Empowering… just a few words that came to mind when we heard these women’s amazing stories and how they have excelled in different avenues of life. Following the panel, Renea, a Ladder Alliance graduate, shared her personal experience with the organization and how it changed her life!
