Hello Queens! (and Kings if you’re reading)
Sunday, June 24th, I attended Summer Trifecta at the Harvey B. Gantt Center presented by The Queens Gathering. These ladies invited us to Wakanda to shop, network, and enjoy other beautiful, talented, driven black women in Charlotte and other areas.
The #1 question is always: How was the event? Well, as usual, I am here to break it down.
Once you entered the building, there was check-in and instructions to take the elevator to the 3rd floor. This began the “Let’s Support” segment where the vendors were set up for everyone to shop until they dropped. Vendors included Styled By Elegance, Sheena’s Collection, Sip Smoke ‘N Stroke, & Queen City Beauty Group. Click each name to learn more about these talented beauties. Next up was the fooood. Yum! We moved to the 2nd floor to the lovely setup with the tables, the DJ and the delicious buffet of African cuisine. Shae Movement completely wow’d the crowd with an outstanding show after dinner was served. We fed our belly so it was time to feed our soul with advice on women’s health, entrepreneurship, fitness, and more from the panel. I love the way everything flowed and Cheryl made sure we didn’t spend too much time in a particular area. I also did not feel like I did not get enough. Everything was just right. Cheryl then said her thank you’s, gave acknowledgments, and revealed the winners of the great prizes from the raffle. Once she was done, it was time to shake a little tailfeather to the tunes of the all female, go-go Dymond Lyfe Band.

In closing, all I have to say is BE THERE NEXT YEAR! The energy and the love in the room was so genuine which is extremely important. I ate a lot and learned even more!
Until the next event queens…
