Kick ass ladies rocked!

Wow! Our fourth annual Kick Ass Ladies Club celebration at Kings was incredible! It was an inspiring night of sharing successes, failures, lessons and insights with more than 250 of Raleigh's most kick ass ladies. If you ever needed a jolt of energy or inspiration, this was it. A huge thank you to Kings for hosting and our incredible host committee and moderator Pam Saulsby for making the evening such a success.
