ets keep it real: sisters come in all shapes and sizes, ethnicities, skin tones, characters and backgrounds, and we each possess unique qualities that make us special. Join WPGC and me as we celebrate “Sisterhood” with the women of the DMV at For Sisters Only® 2102 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in DC. This is my 2nd For Sisters Only® experience and take it from me, you don’t want to miss it! This year’s For Sisters Only® is bigger and better than ever. We have an array of activities for kids, women and men including: Celebrity led empowerment workshops and panels special guest appearances by the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Advice from author and relationship expert Paul Carrick Brunson Sampling and shopping for some of the newest and latest lifestyle products Interaction with local business owners and last but not least music from blackstreet, Q Parker of 112, RL of Next...and Miguel!!! This year’s Man Cave (a lounge area for the fellas) will create the ultimate experience for the guys supporting the sisters, while the Ladies Lounge is where us girls can chill out and get comfortable, enjoying cocktails poured by Ciroc. Yes we plan on partying! So listen, I’m expecting to see all the phenomenal women of the DMV in the bulding. On behalf of WPGC and our whole staff, Thank you for your continued support!
