'Blooming Orchids' event highlights women entrepreneurs




FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Through their passion, drive and determination, women have made their mark in the business world and it is no different right here in The Bahamas. It is these qualities that inspired the organizers of “Blooming Orchids” to put on this event which is scheduled to be held at the Canal House at the Pelican Bay Hotel on November 19th, 2010, from 7:30pm to midnight.
Blooming Orchids is a cocktail expo that will feature 15 women entrepreneurs and give them the opportunity to showcase their businesses and what they are passionate about to the island of Grand Bahama.

“We are inspired by up and coming entrepreneurs and therefore felt the need to create an event and opportunity for these women to showcase what they have to offer and what they are all about” said Kerel Pinder, who is the co-organizer of the event along with her brother. “I have said many times myself I would love to go to affordable events that are different and filled with culture. Therefore that is what we hope to bring to you with this event.”

The event features Leshan Ferguson of Divine Beauty, Lyndah Wells of Lyndah Wells Photography, Chantal Bethel of Chantal E.Y. Bethel Fine Arts, Davina Rutherford of Mirage Weddings & Events, Beverly Cooper who does Home Decorating and Design, Georgia Taylor of Georgia’s School of Dance & Theatre, Sarah Kirkby of Barefoot Marketing, Anthea Bullard of Hardour Collection, Danielle & Lauren Johnson of Something Sweet, Erykah Monique of Erykah Monique and Co., Krystle Allens of Beautiful Reflections by Krystle Allens, Annissa Shepherd, Raquel Smith of Razzle Dazzle and Adrienne Wallace, Michelle and Grace-Ann Adderley of Strawberry Patch.
