As a Mom who also works outside of the home, life can be
stressful insane. Between conference calls, paying bills, packing lunches, helping with homework, cooking dinner, and folding laundry I have little time for me. Ok, no time for me. When was the last time you took a minute, an hour or a whole weekend to reconnect with yourself?
On June 22-24, women will converge in New Orleans for the second annual FestiGals Conference which offers the ultimate women’s weekend getaway. Held at the historic Hotel Monteleone (which I have had the pleasure of staying at for my Anniversary), FestiGals offers something for everyone. Feel empowered during the motivational sessions, rejuvenate in Spa Aria, rejoice with authentic Gospel music, network with female business owners and industry leaders while dining on food prepared by Chef John Folse.
For the philanthropist, attend Bodacious Bras for a Cause Luncheon and Auction featuring keynote speaker, Hoda Kotb, co-host of the fourth hour of NBC’s “Today.” The auction, which benefits the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans, features incredible works of art created directly on bras! The bidding opens May 25th and closes at the luncheon on June 22nd. While attending FestiGals, you can also participate in a fun women’s only second line called the Stiletto Stroll or take part in the Powder’d Sugar Walk headed straight for Cafe du Monde to indulge in some famous beignets and cafe au lait.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased for just $275. The Hotel Monteleone, one of the official sponsors, is offering a hotel rate of $149 per night. For more information, call 504-524-1227 or visit FestiGals on Facebook. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
