Sausalito, California (PRWEB) July 29, 2013
In honor of one of life's most important relationships — our girlfriends — WHOA Network and Wine Sisterhood have paired up to celebrate National Girlfriends Day on August 1 with an exclusive event at the Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles. Members of the two thriving women's communities will converge to enjoy great conversation, great wine, and even a scientifically-proven boost in good health. As visionary and author, Suzanne Braun Levine, advises in her new classic You Gotta Have Girlfriends: A Post Fifty Posse is Good for Your Health: "One of the best things a woman can do for her health is nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. New studies show that women can change one another’s brain chemistry for the better, which means those laughter-filled get-togethers are crucial to aging well. In other words, the post-fifty version of “an apple a day” is “nurture your friendships.”
Both Wine Sisterhood and WHOA Network (Women Honoring Our Age) wholeheartedly share Braun Levine's point of view and are delighted by the opportunity to celebrate the holiday together. In addition to the girlfriend-powered brain chemistry boost, a special cocktail "The Girlfriend" has been created by Wine Sisterhood and Blvd 16 Restaurant at the Hotel Palomar for the event.
"The mission of Wine Sisterhood was to create a space where women could meet and engage in conversation. Sisterhood is powerful in any setting. But when we come together in a gathering like this, you can feel the energy. It's exhilarating," says Terry Wheatley, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. In fact, Wine Sisterhood's successful portfolio of popular wines were smartly developed with the creative assistance of their Wine Sisterhood social communities, especially their 300,000-strong Facebook Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube fans.
"Our girlfriends support who we are at this stage of our lives, and who we're becoming. Our authenticity gives us power," says Lynn Forbes, Co-Founder of the newly launched WHOA Network.
After interviewing thousands of women, Suzanne Braun Levine writes: "I haven't interviewed a single woman about the ups and downs of her recent life who hasn't at some point ended her story with a grateful "I couldn't have made it without my girlfriends."
