Celebrating women

International Women's Day celebrated with afternoon tea

At the soiree were Jo Dibblee

Women were honoured at the first Celebrating Women in Business: Afternoon Tea at the Sooke Harbour House on International Women’s Day, on Sunday, March 8.

The event, presented by the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce was a “smashing success.”

Local business women and guests gathered to celebrate their business achievements over  a scrumptious afternoon tea in the idyllic sunshine- laden dining room. Hats and fascinators were donned, new business relationships former and all were inspired by the words of Her Worship Mayor Maja Tait. Special thanks go to the sponsors.

The chamber looks forward to the next event, the Business Excellence Awards Gala on April 11. Tickets are online at www.sookeregionchamber.com and at the chamber office, 201-2015 Sheilds Rd.
