On March 27th, the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce (GVCCC) Women in Business Committee honored the successes of three distinguished women: Claire Chambers, Founder & CEO, Journelle; Traci Entel, Chief Human Capital Officer & Partner, Booz & Company; and Terri McCullough, Executive Director, The Tory Burch Foundation.
At the opulent Goldbar in Little Italy, VIPs arrived early and networked more intimately with the honorees and host committee members. The venue was abuzz as more guests arrived and over 150 event attendees filled Goldbar, mingling over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres of lobster & corn fritters, ricotta & honey crostinis, crudités and much more.
During the awards ceremony, each honoree shared personal advice…
“Be passionate about what you do….”
“Surround yourself with those that you enjoy being with….”
“Do what you love….”
As the networking evening wound down, guests brought home premium gift bags that included special gifts from Tory Burch, Journelle, Booz & Company, Exhale Spa, Baked by Melissa, Naturally Susan’s and more!
We were honored to work with an extraordinary organizing team, co-chaired by Beth Stellato and Sara Link of Little West Group.
We had a wonderful time and we look forward to seeing everyone at our future events!
Special thanks to our event sponsors and host committee for helping to make our event a success!
