ST. AUGUSTINE, FL – The wildly popular Women’s Wednesdays series is returning for a limited

time this summer! The 2016 Women’s Wednesdays series will take place at the Treasury on the Plaza every Wednesday in June, starting June 1.

The Women’s Wednesdays speakers are incredibly accomplished national and local speakers who will share their personal stories of struggle, triumph and all the little moments to cherish in between.

The dynamic line-up of speakers includes a former WNBA President, an online entrepreneurial phenomenon, a bestselling nonfiction author & motivator, a NY Times & USA Today bestselling romance novelist with 3 million books in print, and a cancer survivor and founder of the popular local Pink Up The Pace race.

More than 1,200 women attended last year’s series, and tickets this year are limited! Tickets are available on Eventbrite or at WomensWednesdays.com. They are $10 or $30 for VIPs, which includes VIP Seating, a premium cocktail & hors d’ oeuvres.

Women who reserve in advance are entered into a drawing at that event for a free She Is Fierce! membership, valued at $400.

“The series is the natural extension of She Is Fierce’s mission to empower women to live boldly,” said She Is Fierce! founder Kelly Youngs.

“It is such a pleasure to bring this series back to St. Augustine again this year, and to be able to highlight so many incredible local women!”

Women’s Wednesdays is presented by Bozard Lincoln, a local company with women in critical leadership positions and more than 30 women on their staff.

Women-owned and women-centered businesses and non-profits will also be a feature of this year’s series. On each of the five nights, one local non-profit will be featured and will also receive 10-percent of the ticket sales for that night. The nonprofits involved are Home Again St. Johns (June 1), tag! Children’s Museum (June 8), United Way St. Johns (June 15), Florida School for the Deaf & Blind (June 22) and Pink Up The Pace! (June 29).

Bozard Lincoln is hosting ‘Girlfriends Night Out’ for each event where local women will have a chance to win VIP tickets and a free Lincoln for the night.

“Bozard Lincoln is proud to be a part of the Women’s Wednesdays series this year!,” said Letti Bozard, Vice President of Community Involvement & Customer Strategy.

“There are impressive women throughout this community working hard to make a difference, and it is a pleasure to honor them through our participation.”

The St. Augustine Record is hosting the “Cocktails & Connections Hour” from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., which will feature “Power Networking,” with a chance to meet and connect with local women leaders.

Funkytown Fitness will get the crowd pumped and a brand-new She Is Fierce! Photo Booth will be on hand for memorable photos with friends.

The series premier on June 1st will feature designs from Panache’s upcoming eco-fashion show, the finale will include makeovers by London Looks, and the Facial Rejuvenation Centre is offering $3,000 worth of giveaways throughout the series.

“This year’s phenomenal speakers will take the stage before an audience of equally fierce women who each brings her own unique story to Women’s Wednesdays and to our local community,” Youngs said. “North Florida women are making big things happen, and we’ll be featuring some local ‘Women We Love’ throughout the series!”
