The Ladies of Virtue is an organization that strives to create a positive, life changing community of strong, independent woman. The evening was filled with lovely conversations, chats, and food. The night started off with cocktails and ended with the hosts stating their mission. Did I mention that the music for the night added to the bumping atmosphere of the party? As someone who never heard of the organization, it wasn’t an issue learning about them, since the volunteers there were so kind to help explain. I was enjoying my night learning about the strong women behind this organization. These women are mentors to young woman, and I find that so inspirational.
All of the money that was made from the event and the auction went to a bigger and better cause. It’s humbling to know that there are still organizations out there that not only benefit women, but also support them as well. “Girls supporting girls” is the best way to sum up the theme for the night. It’s beautiful when women want to empower each other and not bring each other down. Strong, independent women are a force to be reckoned with and are not to be brought down.
Ladies of Virtue hosted an incredible event that not only raised awareness but brought people together. It was a testament to their core values, which are to care for and bring to light issues that impact the lives of women. And this awareness is very much needed–it comes as no surprise that we all need a little help sometimes, as life can get difficult. Girls need to know that they are loved and safe, and this group of women works to provide just that.
I would like to thank Ladies of Virtue for hosting such a great event. I truly felt as if I understood the organization on a deeper level. To everyone who is part of this strong group of women, keep on rocking it and supporting girls. The future is female, and we’re just getting started.
