About the event

EWN Holiday Networking Event:

Join us for an exciting and festive EWN Holiday Networking Event where you can connect with other women, enjoy treats, play fun games, and win prizes. Be sure to wear your ugly (or cute) holiday attire or most jingly jewelry to get into the holiday spirit! 

When you arrive, you will receive a card for "Find the Guest" Holiday Bingo - a fun game to connect with other attendees. Get 5 in a row and win a prize! Also, stop by the Hot Chocolate Station with Cookies provided by our Dessert Sponsor, Rooted in Wellness.

Next, we will enjoy a 10-minute chair yoga session led by Jessica Karpinske of Rooted in Wellness. She will take us through a short session of chair yoga poses designed for relaxation and releasing tension. We will be doing simple stretches, movements, and breathing that go a long way to improve our mental and physical health.

After we are all relaxed, we will open several stations where you can build new connections and celebrate the holiday season with other area women. We have planned an array of activities to keep you engaged throughout the event:

  • Table Talks - if you bring a meal or snack, start here to eat and chat with other attendees.
  • Craft Table where you can create either a wreath or snowflake ornament to keep or gift - all materials provided!
  • Construct a Snowman Activity - we'll provide marshmallows, pretzels, and candy add-ons, and you bring your imagination!
  • Write a holiday card for a local soldier or veteran sponsored by the American Red Cross.

So, bring your holiday spirit and join us for a memorable and fun-filled event. We can't wait to see you there!

It's Back! Join us as we renew our DECEMBER Diaper Drive

For those of you who have been with the Empowered Network (or the Professional Women's Network) for a while, you may remember that each December, we participated in a diaper drive to support the LSS Crisis Nursery in Duluth. When Covid hit, we put it on hold, but it was always a cause near and dear to our hearts. 

We are excited to renew the cause in 2023 with our DECEMBER DIAPER DRIVE. Please bring a package of Size 4-5-6 Diapers, Pull-ups, or Wipes to our December Meeting, and get an extra entry into our raffle prize drawing. Click here to view the LSS Crisis Nursery's Wish List or make a monetary donation. We thank you for your support!
