TSN Winnipeg bureau reporter Sara Orlesky is the keynote speaker at the upcoming Empowerment Speaker Series.
Empowered women will share their stories, success principles and how they overcome adversity during the event on Wednesday, February 26 at Canad Inns Polo Park.
Orlesky is the evening’s headliner, returning to her hometown after the better part of 10 years away to pursue her career of sports journalism. She will speak on the importance of persistence and dreaming big.
Tickets are $25 in advance if purchased before February 7. Admission rises to $30 thereafter and can be purchased online or through the Happy Monkey Club and Prairie Yogi Magazine.
Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to contribute in a fundraiser for W.I.S.H. Inc. where plush Happy Monkeys will be sold. W.I.S.H. provides safe and healthy second-stage housing, counselling, and support programs that promote physical and emotional healing and personal growth for women and their children.
