WomanUP! Hat & Tea Awards Party “Mind, Body & Soul” Tea in the Garden

96 0

The WomanUP! Hat & Tea Awards Party was created by entrepreneurs Shari A. Williams and Tanya T. Morris in 2016.  Their first event was a reception and panel discussion focused on women in business and how other women can support each other. Tanya and Shari, friends for over 15 years were both fed up with seeing the same groups of women receive awards and recognition and decided to start the WomanUP! Hat & Tea Awards Party, an afternoon tea party focused on celebrating and honoring local and regional women.   
The tea celebrates local women who are making a difference by stepping up in their communities, businesses and society.  Honorees are women often unrecognized for their service, advocacy and who unify neighborhoods, volunteer regularly at their places of worship or opens doors to those in need. 
Now in its third year; the sold out event has hosted over 600 women. As part of our committment to giving back we   also raise money for local charities or service organizations and gives local business owners the opportunity to showcase their businesses and grow their profits and networks. This years beneficiary is Bartram Garden’s Sankofa Community Farm at Bartram Garden. For over six years the farm, which sits on four-achres of land in the heart of Southwest Philadephia,  has built strong community connection, produces and distributes over 15,000 pounds of food each year, works with more than 50 local families in the community garden and is powered by roughly 20 paid local high school interns. It manages weekly neighborhood farmstands and grocery partnerships to sell its produce affordably and locally.  Join us in supporting Bartram Garden, local businesses and honor women who are making a difference in the communities they serve. 
There will be great food as always, our signature awards presentation, live entertainment and more!
