In the greater Indianapolis area, there are always fun, exciting and charitable events taking place daily. In fact in one week on Thursday October 3, Women Like Us is hosting its 5th Annual Afternoon Tea and Speaker Series. Even though your options for different events to attend are numerous and you might feel the constraints of a busy schedule, the Afternoon Tea is the one you do not want to miss. First and foremost, the Afternoon Tea benefits a wonderful cause and proceeds benefit the One Girl At A Time Program. This mentorship program not only teaches young girls the essentials for success in the academic and professional environments but also develops personality qualities essential for a happy life. Every girl matters and every girl has a voice and ideas that can change the world.

In addition to benefitting an organization with world-chaning goals, previous Afternoon Teas have been a huge success with everyone walking away happy and excited for the next year. It is a great opportunity to make new friends, enjoy a few laughs, hear inspiring stories, expand networks, and discover how people just like you are changing the world on the community and global level. Take this opportunity to enrich your own life as well as those around you.

Last but certainly not least, and to everyone's great excitement, this year's keynote speaker will be Jessica Fellowes. She is a very successful writer of a series called the Chronicles of Downton Abbey. The television show adaptation has enthralled citizens of the United Kingdom and the Unite States alike. Her perspective and insight in the roles of women throughout the ages will be sure to captivate and educate all who attend. For all the avid Downton Abbey fans, you have the opportunity to take part in a Meet-and-Greet with Jessica Fellowes with the purchase of VIP tickets. Opportunities like this do not knock on the proverbial door every day so make sure you answer it. Also let us not forget that Madeline Di Nonno from the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media will be presenting as well. She will surely bring new insight into a very prevalent problem in society.

It is clear that there are several reasons to attend the Afternoon Tea and Speaker Series.  Whether you are going for a good time, to educate yourself, to meet new people, or any combination of the above, you will surely leave satisfied and with a new perspective on the world. Women Like Us is truly grateful to all who help and inspire young girls around the community, country, and globe. Join Women Like Us and take part in one of the most monumental and noble movements of the century and always remember: Encourage, Empower, Engage.

There is one week left until the fun begins, so buy tickets today and we will see you at the Best Tea Party in Town!
