UWIB Winter Soirée!
We went to UWIB DC Presents: Annual Winter Soiree with happy hour and silent auction at Local 16. The United Women in Business Foundation board of directors hosted the event, a celebration of the holiday season in which guests enjoyed appetizers, drinks, desserts and a silent auction. We snapped board members TMP Government LLC's Jessica Everhart, UWIB DC VP of community relations Andrea Campero, Mary's Center Elizabeth MacLaughlin and Discover Arlington's Leah Virbitsky.
The silent auction had items from local fitness hotspots, educational resources, fashion designers and jewelers such as ArtJamz, Cava, CorePower Yoga, Kendra Scott, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Studio Theatre and Zengo Cycle. Here, more UWIB DC board members: IBM's Maria DeRoss, UWIB national president Shayla Stewart and UWIB DC president Christine Zaccack.
All proceeds will go towards future UWIB programming, membership and philanthropy events. The first 20 UWIB member attendees received a swag bag and a complimentary first drink. Here, AAAE's Maribeth Sarnecki with Deloitte's Kelsey Beck and Sarah Arghavan.
