Happy National Girlfriends Day!
Tonight, we’ll be in Los Angeles to celebrate our favorite people – girlfriends!
Wine Sisterhood is meeting up with the members of WHOA Network (Women Honoring Our Age) to toast to National Girlfriends Day at the fabulous Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles. Sparked by Suzanne Braun Levine’s new book, You Gotta Have Girlfriends: A Post Fifty Posse is Good for Your Health, we’ll be discussing the power of female community and how important it is to our health.
“One of the best things a woman can do for her health is nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. New studies show that women can change one another’s brain chemistry for the better, which means those laughter-filled get-togethers are crucial to aging well. In other words, the post-fifty version of ‘an apple a day’ is ‘nurture your friendships,’” Levine advises in her book.
We’re excited to celebrate this special day with our girlfriends at WHOA Network, a group of women we share many of the same values with.
“Our girlfriends support who we are at this stage of our lives, and who we’re becoming. Our authenticity gives us power,” says Lynn Forbes, Co-Founder of the newly launched WHOA Network.
WHOA Network is an inspiring community and sisterhood focused on creating a shift in how women are perceived as we get older.
“Sisterhood is powerful in any setting. But when we come together in a gathering like this, you can feel the energy. It’s exhilarating,” says Terry Wheatley, Wine Sisterhood Founder and Chief Marketing Officer.
We’re predicting that tonight’s conversation will inspire more than a few new friendships. That conversation will be paired with “The Girlfriend,” a special cocktail we helped create with Blvd 16 Restaurant at the Hotel Palomar, created exclusively for this event.
Tonight we toast to you, girlfriends!
