Ladies Power Lunch in July and it was a HOT one!


What do you get when you put some of Raleigh’s top leading business women together in one room on a hot July day!?!  A room full of HOTTNESS of course!   The Triangle Ladies Power Lunch, coordinated and hosted by Carrie Peele of Blue Diamond Limo, has quickly become the monthly “not-to-miss-women-luncheon-event-of-the-Triangle”.  Carrie is a powerhouse and she really knows how to pull power, professionalism and productivity together!  Each month she gathers the top of the top and the best of the best together to hear a powerful speaker and to make dynamic connections.  Our CPA firm has been a proud sponsor of this luncheon for the past year and it has been a pleasure to be so involved with Carrie and her team.

The July luncheon proved to be just as great and the only change was the location.  We’ve previously met at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC and what a great place to be!  However, since the Triangle Ladies Power Lunch reaches out to ALL ladies in the Triangle area, the luncheon will move around to different banquet facilities throughout the year in order to be accommodating to the entire audience.  For the month of July (and August-Sept) we are meeting at The Hilton Garden Inn (“Mansion on the Hill”) in Durham, NC.  

I met some fabulous women during the open-shopping-hour and really enjoyed having Sarah Thacker of Thacker Law Firm, Shanna Middleton of Real-eStage and Heather Foust of Curb Appeal to Sold as my three guests.  Rebecca Antonelli of  The Center for Creative Marketing, was the luncheon speaker and spoke about her history of being a serial-entrepreneur.  As always, I enjoyed seeing Alice with RBC Bank  and Penny Lauricella of Pretty In Pink Foundation (a local non-profit organization that Triangle Ladies Power Lunch proudly supports as our ‘charity of choice’) at the luncheon

Thanks Carrie for such a HOT time on such a hot day in July!
