Last Saturday night, April 25, GAP Promo joined CWE in celebrating their 20th Anniversary at their 2015 Auction & Gala in Boston. It was a fun-filled evening packed with great entertainment and wonderful people, and we were thrilled to be a part of it. At GAP, we believe giving back is important, and as a certified Women Owned Business, this event was a special one for us.
For those of you who don’t know, the Center For Women & Enterprise has four local chapters of the WBENC (The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council). CWE is a non-profit organization that helps people start businesses. When you support CWE, you are supporting women-owned businesses get started and become established.
Typically, CWE will raise close to $500,000 at this annual event. This year, GAP participated in helping raise money for various scholarships. We donated several silent auction items including a Tito’s Handmade Vodka Retro Trailer Grill, a Yuengling Swag Pack, and some fashionable tote bags. We also donated selfie sticks and sunglasses, which were placed at the tables for the guests. They were a huge hit! We think those selfie sticks can even help out with CWE’s Selfie Campaign.
Participating in events like this help create opportunities for women-owned businesses and help them to become economically self-sufficient, strong, and successful. GAP Promo was honored to be there and we look forward to future CWE events!
