International Women’s Day means it’s time to celebrate at Formula Honda!

 

Our team at Formula Honda are so very happy to announce that our annual Ladies Night Out event was a giant success. In celebration of National Women’s Day, we brought everyone around our community together last night, Monday, March 6th, to celebrate, and recognize the achievements of the women around us.

We had booths and vendors of local businesses showcasing their amazing products and services, female entrepreneurs and lots of food and beverages. Each of these booths was run by business owners and employees who joined us in celebrating equality and the powerful women around us. Many of the local businesses who attended donated prizes, which were awarded throughout the night to many lucky raffle winners!

The biggest prize given was a 4-night stay in beautiful Jamaica! This wonderful trip was generously donated by The Travel Kiosk located in the Peanut Plaza at 3030 Don Mills Road East.  Watch the short video of the winner being drawn:

Not only did we have some great prizes, Formula Honda brought in many inspirational guest speakers. Our very close friend, Bobbie Herron, drove all the way from Michigan to come celebrate the night with us. She spoke to us about her career and successes in life. Bobbie used positivity and hard work to build her herself up in a prominently male-dominated industry to where she is today, the director of an automotive dealer digital marketing solutions company. Not only did Bobbie leave the crowd feeling empowered, we overheard some women saying they wanted to go home and start their own business. Amazing speech?! We think so.

Formula Honda celebrates International Women’s Day so we can recognize the women around us. We made sure to include our whole community, even the members that weren’t able to attend last night. Donations were accepted and gifted to the Scarborough Hospital foundation – Birchmount Campus. Formula Honda happily matched any monetary contributions, up to $2,500, that was given towards this worthy cause! Our community means a lot to us, and that relationship is one of the most important aspects of our business.

It’s safe to say that our night was everything we had hoped for. Formula Honda would like to thank Janise from Snapd Scarborough for her part in planning and delivering to this event. We really couldn’t have done it without you, Janise! Our appreciation extends to the dancers that traveled all the way from Brampton, Ontario to put on a show for us!

We also want to give a BIG shoutout to all of the vendors and supporters: Andree Nicole Inc.Bits and Bobs by Crash and BangBStellar Consulting GroupCelestineStyleEYENI, G.H.E.T.T.O, Heritage Skills Development Centre (HSDC) , Melaleuca The Wellness CompanyKi-Events (It Works)Lala Skin Essentials, Lavern Lewis Publishing, Locsuria Natural Hair System, Luv Lockits, Mary Kay, Olive Branch of Hope Foundation, Olive Media Network, One, Boutique Spa, Scentsy Independent Consultant, Serkin Promotions , Soulful Image Magazine, Sutton Group-Admiral Realty Inc., Brokerage, SWOP, Tafari’s Naturalistics.
