The Chocolate Soiree offers women business owners and contractors the opportunity to learn about Business Babes Society and the many benefits that come with membership.
Featured speakers include Star Charities Co-founder and President, Anna Foultz who has won numerous national, regional and local awards in recognition of her many accomplishments.

Now based in Maryland, she has co-authored her autobiography which will make its debut in October.
Joining Ms. Foultz will be motivational speaker and training consultant for companies, Vera Thomas. From her base in Lexington, Kentucky, Thomas works throughout the region with organizations and educational institutions specializing in human resource development, classroom management training and mediation.
