How to make a Thursday more chic? Scandinavian Women’s Association knows the secret.. They invited ladies from all ages and nationalities to Ladies Night at a French venue.
Ooh la la and big SWA merci
”It was truly a wonderful evening,” says Mette Trock-Jansen from Krag Nordic. Almost half a hundred other women agree with her.
”We can’t believe we had the biggest turnout ever on a Ladies Night,” says SWA President Maria Therese Hedenborg.
In total 49 women gathered at the chic O’Batignolles Wine Bar & French Bistrot to SWA’s Ladies Night, and 18 new women signed up for SWA membership on the evening. This makes the biggest turnout to the SWA ever. New President Maria Therese Hedenborg is proud of how the event turned out.
”This Ladies Night has so far been the biggest in SWA’s history. Never have we managed to gather so many women to a networking event. It was amazing to meet both new and familiar faces, and especially for me it was fantastic to greet new members welcome onboard,” says Maria Therese Hedenborg. The Ladies Night was the first of its kind since she took over the President post in March 2016.
The French wine bar O’Batignolles served delicious food and yummy nibbles all night, and the French-inspired interior created a cozy-chic atmosphere, perfect for cheering in wine with your girlfriends.
To make the night even more joyful, SWA had created a charity lottery lucky draw, sponsored by Danish Business Association Singapore. The ladies had the chance to win amazing prizes, but in reality, the biggest prize guaranteed this night was knowing the money for attending the lottery all went to support SWA’s local charity partners.
”The support from our members and sponsors means the world. It makes it possible for us to keep giving back to the community through our local charity partners,” says Maria Therese Hedenborg. Among others SWA is supporting Breadline Group Singapore and Boys’ Town.
SWA aims to create values for both members and the surrounding community. Being a non-profit charity organisation, SWA members pays a small fee to participate in events to cover food and beverages, but it is not required to be a member to support or to participate in SWA’s events.
”The meaning with SWA’s Ladies Nights are to create a non-formal and fun networking event for our members, but everyone is welcome. Scandinavian or not, we are more than happy when our members bring a friend or two along,” says Maria Therese Hedenborg.
Next Ladies Night will be 8 June 2016 – last one before the summer holiday break. Stay tuned for an amazing Wednesday in the name of glamour, where attendees prior to the Ladies Night have the opportunity to join a separat SWA makeup and personal styling event. Here, the ladies will learn about new make up techniques, getting a make up makeover, get styled in amazing dresses, and of course, have fun with other ladies before heading out for the Ladies Night event.
