The Sporty Women’s Empowering Evening of Tips and Advice (SWEET) is a night all about inspiring women of all ages and abilities to get active. We have inspiring guest speakers, a short fashion show, local experts women can chat with, sweet treats, awesome door prizes and we send everyone home with a loot bag!
This is a women’s only event so all of the guests, experts, speakers and staff are women. NO BOYS ALLOWED.
We start the evening by giving everyone an opportunity to walk around the store and speak to the invited experts. Each expert has a display table.
We have a stage and chairs set up for the speakers and a fashion show. This year’s speakers were both Olympians! Sharon Donnelly spoke about TEAM…includes ‘the letters’ ME- the importance of making time for yourself and Sue Holloway spoke about the importance of keeping our daughters active.
The first SWEET event was held nine years ago. We have gone from a small group of enthusiastic women to a huge group of enthusiastic women and WE LOVE IT! In order to ensure that everyone continues to enjoy a great experience at SWEET we started selling tickets in 2014. 100% of the money collected from ticket sales is donated to charity. This year the event sold out three weeks in advance and we donated over $2000 to the Ottawa School Breakfast Program. The 10th anniversary edition of SWEET will be held on April 9th, 2017.
