WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM FEBRUARY 26-MARCH 3, 2020 UCW 15 Women rock! We bring home the bacon, cook it and enjoy eating every piece of it. Women are an integral force in society, and they make a dif- ference in the lives of others. Women deserve to be celebrated, which is why Cape Fear Botanical Garden presents the 1st Annual 2020 Wom- en's Summit "Rooted," Saturday, Feb. 29. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cape Fear Botanical Garden. "is is our first ever Women's Summit to happen at the garden, and it is all things women — shopping, fashion, home, health and beauty" said Lia Hasapis, marketing coor- dinator of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden. "Anything you can imagine will be here." e idea of the Women' Sum- mit originated from Sheila Hanrick, director of events at Cape Fear Botanical Garden. "She thought it would be something different to do and something that is centered just around women and local businesses in town that support women as well as encourage women to have their own specific event," said Hasapis. "We loved the idea. is event will be a fun thing because you will be able to renew and energize after a long winter." e event will feature local women speakers, workshops and vendors. e speakers include Dr. Connie Brooks Fernandez, owner of Allure Aesthetics & Medical Spa; Donna Everhart, USA Today's best-selling author; Alexandra Badgett, Miss North Carolina 2019; Judith Cage, chef, business owner and guest on the Food Network; and Dr. Patrice Carter, Christian Life Coach, author and motivational speaker. e workshops are a preg- nant and postpartum fitness work- shop with Erica Royster, self-defense with M J Fitness, makeup with MBM and Simply Liz Love, creating a calming space with Monique Tuset, financial goals with Monique Tuset and stunning suc- culents with Amy Stidham. Vendors will also be on-site. "We just opened our Garden View Café — Elite Catering owns and operates it, and they will be here serving lunch," said Hasapis. "We also have a few food trucks who will be coming, they are Hello Crepe and Java Express." Hasapis added there will be a travel agency vendor that will share what kinds of fun trips you can go on with your girlfriends or family members.
