Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
Watermark, a community of executive women who come together to connect, develop and advocate for one another, will host their annual Wine, Women, and Wisdom event at the historic Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park on June 5.
Wine, Women, and Wisdom is a casual, late-afternoon gathering that brings together the Bay Area’s topmost women to connect with one another and to celebrate their accomplishments. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Watermark, making this particular event a wonderful way to commemorate all of the achievements women have had in the workplace over the last two decades. While it goes without saying that the main attraction at Wine, Women, and Wisdom is the sheer breadth of incredibly accomplished women, the event also features a silent auction where Watermark board members, all of whom are industry leaders, will donate one hour of one-on-one consultation. Additionally, this year’s Wine, Women, and Wisdom includes an exclusive shopping opportunity: Jody Wilson of Wilson Dean Shoes, Inc., and formerly of Wilkes Bashford, will be bringing his new private collection of luxury Italian handbags for purchase. Mr. Wilson will be offering his collection at a substantial discount to attendees, and a percentage of each sale will go to the Watermark Institute’s advocacy activities on behalf of women.
Come share in this important moment in Watermark history — 20 years of women together, making their mark at the highest levels of business, and beyond.
