Come ‘Wine Down’ on Wednesday, April 30 at Trali Irish Pub with special guest and motivational speaker Jessica Ekstrom, Founder of Headbands of Hope!
Trali has their own ‘Wine Down Wednesday’ special which includes ½ off wine bottles and much more. Don’t miss out on meeting new people, a great new venue and an incredible speaker!
About our speaker, Jessica Ekstrom:
During her junior year of college, Jess started her own company, Headbands of Hope, to help brighten the lives of children battling cancer. For every headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. Jess works full-time as the CEO of the company, regularly visits hospitals around the country to deliver headbands to girls and visits campuses nationwide to share her story of how she turned a summer internship into an organization that changes the world.
Jess’s 15-minute presentation is titled, “Awareness into Action!”
Description: Being aware of an issue isn’t enough. Awareness doesn’t equal change. Action does. I’m aware that 46 parents per day will be told their child has cancer, but I don’t just put a pin on my backpack and post about it on Facebook. You take action to make a change. Everything won’t be perfect; you’ll fail a lot. But when you fail or get rejected, you’re still laps ahead of people not even trying. So why not go for it?
Come ‘Wine Down’ on Wednesday, April 30!
