Women in Business - Accessory Swap! 


March 23, 2018

Thank you to all the ladies who came to our 5th Women in Business event hosted at 125Live last night! It was an honor working with Samantha Erickson of Mae & Company and connecting with everyone who came! Women in Business (WIB) was originated by Sterling State Bank’s own, Heather Donovan, Assistant Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer. Heather created Women in Business in hopes to bring women together to network and grow their social circle. WIB is a great opportunity for women to share their small business and network with other successful women in the community.

With an attendance averaging 40 ladies, this event featured a popular accessory swap! Each lady brought in 3 – 5 accessories and swapped it out with something new to take home! All leftover accessories were donated to Kristina Hesby, who is starting an online consignment shop featuring women’s clothing and accessories. Every quarter, The Social Shop selects a local organization to receive a portion of the sales. To celebrate this new accessory swap event, The Social Shop will take any leftover items, list them online, and donate 100% of the proceeds to the community schools in Rochester. Not only is Kristina starting this online business, she is also a part of the Med City Foundation in Rochester. If you missed this event, but still want to donate your gently used accessories, feel free to contact Kristina Hesby.

Congratulations to everyone who won prizes at last night’s event! One lucky lady won a $50 gift card to Hobby Lobby presented by Rochester Title! Sterling State Bank gave away two $25 gift cards; one to Soul Purpose and another to Fiddlehead Coffee. Tami Greenslade won the grand prize by Samantha Erickson on behalf of Mae + Co – a 1:1 makeup training session and personalized lip & eye color compact to take home!

Women in Business is held quarterly, and the next event will fall around late May! Rumor has it, this one may be a golfing clinic – which, when hosted last year had such rave reviews we had to bring it back again this year!
