Pearls of Empowerment met Friday, April 28 at the Johnson Tea House & Bakery in Farmington for a spring social and membership drive.

Hot teas, cold teas, coffee, danishes, scones, and other goodies were served. Nineteen women attended.

Established in 2009, Pearls of Empowerment is a giving circle of women that seeks to improve the lives of women and children in Davie County.  Women of all ages pool annual contributions which fund grants.

“What I love about Pearls of Empowerment is that our members come together from all professions and backgrounds in order to give back to Davie County.  From educators to business professionals to stay at home moms and everything in between, we all have a common goal of assisting programs for women and children here in our own community.  We may not be able to do a lot as one individual pearl, but when we come together as a strand, we really make a difference,” said Kelly Funderburk, chair of marketing and membership.

Pearls of Empowerment meets approximately twice a year for educational programs and twice a year for socials with an annual luncheon every November when grants are awarded.

Pearls welcomes new members as individuals or small groups. Learn more at
