I hope you all saw the official announcement for the Women’s Support Retreat on April 10th. I’ve received many questions throughout the day about the dinner menu, event schedule, and cost, so I thought I’d do a follow-up post with general information before tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (8:00 AM). Let me know in the comments if I forgot any info you need!
Women’s Support Retreat Event Schedule
Check-In: 4:00-6:00 PM
If you choose to reserve a guest room for the night, check-in goes from 4:00-6:00 PM. Guest room reservations are NOT required for you to attend the event. Each room can accommodate single or double occupancy and the cost can be split between guests who would like to share a room. You must call to reserve your room. Breakfast is included on the morning of the 11th for all guests staying overnight.
Guest Room: $99
Main Event: 6:00-8:00 PM
This part of the event will include welcome and introductions, dinner, keynote speakers, a quick presentation about local charities and support groups, including information on how you can receive support and also become involved in supporting others who suffer from infertility or pregnancy loss (there are so many ways beyond monetary donations–the simplest thing can make a world of difference to these women!), as well as an open discussion with all attendees. This will allow our guests to freely acknowledge and express their pain and receive immediate, raw support from others who understand.
*Guests who are attending the event, but not reserving an overnight room, please arrive between 5:45-6:00 PM.
Main Event: $35
Networking: 8:00 PM Until You Choose to Leave
Beginning at 8 o’clock, you’ll have the chance to network with our keynote speakers and the other attendees. There will be signup sheets for those interested in becoming involved with a support group. While this event is designed to connect women, please don’t worry if you’re shy and don’t like speaking in groups. You don’t have to speak or share anything personal if you prefer to just listen and participate in your own way!
A variety of nonalcoholic beverages
Chicken Cordon Bleu
*If you have food allergies, please include them in the “Preferences” section of your online reservation, or make sure to let our staff know if you purchase your ticket over the phone.
*Dinner is included for everybody at no additional cost.
I think that covers it! Feel free to let me know if I forgot something.
Please note: The Women’s Support Retreat is for women ages 16 and up. Exceptions cannot be made for this event.
Thank you! We’re looking forward to seeing you!
