Get Ready to Soar at #WeAllGrow Summit's Welcome Cocktail Party

After a day of field trips, there’s nothing quite like the welcome cocktail party on Thursday, March 2nd to kick off the official start of #WeAllGrow Summit! This year, we really wanted to go with a super special theme for our community. We came up with a little something-something we think you’re really going to like.

Frida Kahlo was a revolutionary. She was the pinnacle for embracing and loving oneself no matter what. She’s a big inspiration to a lot of us. So get your #AlasParaVolar ready because we’re having a Frida-inspired cocktail party to start our weekend together off the right way! The best part? Macy’s is joining us as the official sponsor!

Our team and Macy’s are busy putting the final details to make this an oh-so-fun night but here’s a little rundown of what you can expect at the #AlasParaVolar Welcome Party, presented by Macy's:

DANCE!

Chulita Vinyl Club, an all-girl crew that’s creating new spaces and empowering women of color to express themselves and their cultural heritage by spinning old records, will get the party started and have us dancing the night away!

CROWN YOURSELF!

Then, make sure to adorn yourself a-la-Frida with a very special flower crown from the talented Jessica Resendíz of Raggedy Tiff. You can either make your own along with her or pick one that’s already been made. It’s really going to complete your outfit so make sure to capture that!

SNAP THE ENERGY!

This night promises to be an unforgettable moment full with Energy of Sisterhood and we’re collaborating with artists we admire. The insanely talented Samantha Santana is creating a Frida-inspired photo background with her beautiful wallpapers. The sister-brother duo, Denise Cortes and Jeshua Viveros, are teaming up to co-create a wings mural so you capture your #AlasParaVolar.

¡SALUD!

When you need a little break from all the excitement, grab some tacos. Additionally, RumChata, a blend of premium Caribbean rum, real dairy cream, cinnamon, and vanilla, will be pouring fabulous recipes throughout the entire welcome party. Be sure to come by and try a taste of paradise and meet with their top mixologist who will be concocting all our cocktails.

Finally, stop by the Macy’s cabana and view their pop-up, Frida-themed shop! Meet with their stylists and view their top picks, including clothing, accessories and more.

Excited?! We are, too! And now it’s time to start planning those perfect outfits! Keep in mind this is not a costume party but rather Frida-inspired. This weekend is all about finding your wings and flying! We want you to let go and soar throughout the weekend with confidence and empowerment. So, wear whatever makes you feel fabulous and all-about-that Frida energy.
