The Chicks’mas event began in December 2000 when a small group of girlfriends began organizing their annual Christmas gift exchange. They realized that they didn’t need the presents and redirected their Christmas gift giving spirit towards women and children in need.
The results were amazing; the first fundraiser revealed to these women that their generosity had fuelled their spirits. The event took on a life of its own as each guest was encouraged to invite a few more “Chicks” the following year.
Today, Chicks’mas has hundreds of supporters and we expect over 200 Professional women to attend this year’s spectacular event.
“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility, to give something back by becoming more.” ~Anthony Robbins
