Six influential Charlotte women will deliver wisdom, inspiration and encouragement with the symbolic gesture of passing a purse filled with sentimental items to a young girl during Girl Talk's third annual Pass the Purse Empowerment Tea. 

Sponsored by Wells Fargo, the Empowerment Tea is the culmination of a mentoring initiative that pairs invited “Women of Influence” with middle and high school girls from various Charlotte Mecklenburg schools for a period to have an influence on them through mentorship and relationship development.  During the formal tea, each pair will recap their experience together to the audience.  Each presentation ends with the woman of influence passing a purse, donated by Belk department store, filled with items that are a reflection of what they have learned from each other and can help the young lady as she moves forward in life.  

Tickets are still available for the Empowerment Tea, which is a great opportunity to share a positive family experience, particularly on Mother’s Day weekend.  Individual tickets are $100 and available at www.GirlTalkFoundationInc.com.
