Miami, Florida (PressExposure) January 13, 2010 -- For Immediate Release
Founded by Leslie Harris the Women on the Move and GL Homes is partnering with Susan G. Komen, South Florida for its first fundraising event âUnveil Your Pinkâ on March 20, 2010 from 7 pm â 12am at the Boca Resort & Club. The event will be hosted by Lisa Wu Hartwell from the Real Housewives of Atlanta and music will be provided by celebrity DJ, DJ Cassidy
Women on the Move was founded in 2009 because Leslie saw a need for more interaction and more networking in a positive way between women. The internet connects people from all over the world and using that medium, she started the group on facebook. After two months of being online, the group has grown to over 2,000 members and counting.
â I was on the search for a networking group that highlighted the support of women positively in just about anything they do and I couldnât find one, so I took the initiative to start this network. It is growing at such a rapid rate; it has helped me realize that women do need consistent positivity to continue giving their best to the world. This event is one of many to come that we will produce to help support women across the world.â- Founder Leslie Harris
Women on the Move is the new network that aims to serve as a support system highlighting the positive experiences of women and their many passions. Women from different locations, backgrounds, and cultures, have all come together to promote the sharing of ideas, advice, and support through various social media (blogs, facebook and twitter) and events to support various charities.
â This event is supporting a great cause. Itâs interesting how we never pay attention to certain issues until it hits close to home. A very close friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer recently, and it hit so close to home for me, I decided to take a proactive role in this cause. I truly admire the resilience of so many women going through this challenge, and the more knowledgeable we are about it, the easier it will be to beat it. Early detection is key. I believe this âUnveil Your Pinkâ event is going to be fabulous, I canât wait to see how much funds we raise for this cause.â- Lisa Wu Hartwell.
The event is sponsored by GL Homes, Blue Martini, Eleven Spa by Nikki Oden, The Womenâs International Film and Arts Festival, IN FOCUS magazine, DJ Cassidy and Charity Lives.
