The Inaugural Park City Women's Expo Benefits Peace House
The Park City Women’s Expo comes October 13 and 14. Organizers say the inaugural event is all about education, support and community. Melissa Allison has more:
The price of admission is $10 per day with half of the proceeds benefiting Peace House.
Each day presents something different. Park Record Events Organizer Julie Bernhard said there’s something for everyone.
“We have everything from a women’s candidates panel discussion,” Bernhard said. “We have six of the 12 candidates running for office attending and discussing and the audience can participate with a Q & A after the discussion. We have hair, fashion shows, we have intuitive practices for everyday life, self-defense, fitness, health and nutrition, financial advice, business help, you name it.”
The panel will go on for about 90 minutes and Bernhard said they’ll cover several topics.
“Everything from healthcare to bills and community consensus with women,” Bernhard said. “Female empowerment in the government and a number of different issues that will discussed by them, then the Q & A after.”
Park City Women’s Business Network President Kathleen Barlow, who is also presenting on both days, said the expo is doing something unique.
“I love that we have six women candidates, in one place,” Barlow said. “When was the last time we’ve done something like that? As a city or as, just in our country? And I think, Julie you said that there were more than six, like running in our local is…?
“Twelve, there are 12,” Bernhard said.
“Yeah, 12! How exciting is that?” Barlow said.
Barlow is also a financial adviser and will discuss Money Matters on Saturday and with a continuation of information on Sunday.
“We’re going to talk a little bit about, kind of what is our relationship with money and how, does that effect how we work with our money?” Barlow said. “And then I’m also going to do some practical like, ‘How do you budget, what’s a budget, do you need one?’ And then maybe some investing 101.”
Barlow said this is an opportunity for women to come together and learn about everything fashion, to money to politics.
Hugo Coffee Roasters will have beverages and food for sale at the event from 9 to 1 p.m. each day of the expo.
The event is at The Prospector at 2175 Sidewinder Dr. and starts at 9 a.m. on both days – cash is preferred for admission.
