Pearls of Empowerment, organized under the Davie Community Foundation, is more than a women’s giving circle.

Pearls also like to have fun.

The Pearls Marketing/Membership Committee plans a social event each year to give women a chance to be together and get to know one another in relaxed setting. Since it is open to all women, it also gives interested women the opportunity to meet others and learn more about the giving circle and the grants they make.

Pearls held their last social in 2019 after hours at Meg Brown Home Furnishings. The women enjoyed home decorating and spring freshening tips from Megan Brown. They also enjoyed refreshments, fellowship, and looking at the furnishings throughout the store.

“It was a fun evening enjoyed by more than 80 women,” said Jane Simpson, foundation president and CEO.

This month, Pearls of Empowerment will host its annual social at The Factory Coffee House in Downtown Mocksville  on May 19 from 6-7:15 p.m. In addition to the opportunity to meet and talk with other women of all ages, Pearls will enjoy coffee and dessert and hear an update from one of their November 2021 grantees.

“It will give Pearls a chance to get together after a three-year break for some fun and fellowship. It is sure to be well attended because almost all ladies like dessert,” Simpson said.
