A HUGE thank you to all who attended our April Girls Night Out event at Wahlburgers in Waterford Lakes! It was our first time in East Orlando and our biggest event yet! It was great meeting so many of you that were joining us for the first time and also seeing those of you that travelled from all over Central Florida to attend our event! We got very lucky that the bad weather left just in time! Also, a big thank you to the staff at Wahlburgers for being so accommodating, both before the event and during! Thank you for spoiling us with some free appetizers, great drink specials (including a special drink just for us!), and discounts on our meals! Everything was delicious as always. Lastly, a special thank you to those that brought donations to support our local charity for this event, The Magic Yarn Project. Taunya was there answering your questions and was a huge help with greeting our guests! If you are looking to learn more about The Magic Yarn Project, be sure to check out our blog post here.
