Sparkling Hill Resort will host the Woman of Worth WOW event March 8.

WOW event draws near

Although the event doesn’t take place until March 8, half-price registration is available until Tuesday.

Women are invited to get wowed at the 10th annual Woman of Worth WOW event.

Although the event doesn’t take place until March 8, half-price registration is available until Tuesday.

Sparkling Hill Resort hosts the event which features a previous real-life female James Bond, world champion kickboxer, award-winning humorist, international hormones expert, and a doctor who’s husband was murdered right outside her home.

They’re all featured speakers at the 10th annual Woman Of Worth WOW Event.

The all-day event gives women the opportunity to personally tap into the savvy and smarts of these extraordinary presenters.

It’s a power-packed day of empowered leadership with world-class speakers, entertainment, education, celebration, connections, lunch and chocolate.

Christine Awram, founder of WOW, started these events a decade ago to provide a unique blend of personal and professional development along with a strong element of humour, fun and celebration.

“I believe all women are leaders, and WOW provides a forum for women to not only learn but to be further empowered and celebrate their magnificence,” said Awram.

“It’s a powerful and extraordinary day, and it’s the event of the year for women.”

The humour becomes immediately obvious when Awram tells you she believes chocolate is a vegetable, as it comes from a bean.

Those who attend the event also have an opportunity to find out about WOW’s charitable project, in association with Kelowna-based IWEN.

“We have a philanthropic arm where we rescue young girls from slavery and provide educational scholarships and micro-financing in Nepal,” said Awram.

“This grassroots project has been wildly successful, and has transformed the cultural and economic profile of the community. Our global sisters are reclaiming their rightful place as Women Of Worth.”

The event will be capped off with a performance by a local trio, The Dharma Dolls.
