The first event ( Meet n’ Mingle) of thebitches was held on the 2nd of October 2017 @ Saraya, Sangolda in Goa. The event that was to be a simple get together was a resounding success with over 200 women participating and saw around 40 pop up stalls, 7 painting exhibits, photography exhibits by students of CMYK Academy, and a Talen’tell where talent flowed freely. Rocking musicians on the Guitar, soothing melody of the Sitar, soulful poetry, feisty dances, handy make up tips, and enchanting songs mesmerized the audience. An impromptu Flash Dance added to the electrifying atmosphere as women from all social classes and ages danced and sang and shopped !!
The Chaiperson of the Women’s Wing of GCCI (Goa Chamber Of Commerce and Industry), Ms Jennifer Lewis Kamat graced the occasion.
The donations collected at the event are pledged towards the social cause of providing clean drinking water for the needy as dirty water is the root cause of many vector diseases which result in severe health problems and also loss in man hours and income among people who do not have access to potable water.
