Port St. Lucie Business Women Share Tea With SMART Girls
Last year the Port St. Lucie Business Women awarded $1,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County to establish and operate a program called SMART Girls. Each week participants gathered to discuss topics ranging from confidence building to peer pressure to bullying and learn effective ways to deal with the challenges presented.
Thanks to the Port St. Lucie Business Women’s support 20 girls from the Infinity Club finished their eight-week program and celebrated with a tea party at the Garden Club of Fort Pierce on May 3. A number of Business Women attended the event so that the girls had the opportunity to meet professional women and to introduce them to the concept of networking. The Port St. Lucie Business Women also learned first-hand the impact the program had on these girls.
The Port St. Lucie Business Women is a 39-year-old professional organization dedicated to promoting the interests of women and serving our community. For more information visit www.pslbw.com. Follow their Facebook page for updates about events, programs and community involvement.
