Last year's first annual Southlake Style Women's Luncheon benefitting The Gatehouse was a big success. The sold-out event featured keynote speaker Kim Garrett in a fun and inspiring afternoon for more than 250 women. You're invited to join us for our second gathering of lively ladies and lunch.
This year be inspired by Merrilee Kick, an Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Woman of 2016, and her message that the difference between failure and luck is found in the amount of effort applied to learning from your mistakes.
Kick has worked the red carpets of the Cannes Film Festival as a magazine editor, anchored the drive-time newscasts for CBS Radio and operated a marketing company producing hundreds of voice-over spots for television—all before becoming a teacher at Plano West High School. While grading papers one afternoon Kick had an idea that literally drove her to drink. Her idea to build a better beverage in a ball has caught on, so much so that she now calls the shots as the president of Carrollton-based BuzzBallz and Southern Champion LLC, the $20 million premium wine and spirits companies she founded in 2009.
Our featured speaker, Danielle Vaughn is a life coach, meditation teacher and founder of FlyKids Yoga. Before Vaughn became all these great things she helped grow a profitable company from the ground up, morphing it into a multimillion-dollar business. While she didn’t realize it at the time, the skills and tactics she gained in the corporate world eventually served as stepping stones to what has become Southlake’s original yoga studio for children: FlyKids. (The FLY in FlyKids stands for ‘freely love yourself’.)
The luncheon, presented by Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake, will take place at The Marq on Friday, October 13 from 10:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m. All registered guests will enjoy the inspirational theme and networking with friends and receive a swag bag of special gifts, a gourmet catered lunch from Southlake's own Scratch Kitchen, plus fine wine from Southern Champion!
