Vascola Stoney.jpg
DJ TeeRamz.jpg
Spoken Word performance by Rev. Vascola Stoney will move your soul and transcend your mind. The word of God through forceful and heart stirring poetry will leave you wanting more.  
We gone party like its 1999 with our resident DJ!  DJ TeeRamz combines old school and new school while she spins the music that takes you back down memory lane! Enjoy the day party and her style on Saturday and Sunday.
We have all run out of things to cook during this pandemic!  Grab your lunch and watch four of Chicago's best "lady" chefs will square off to show us their cooking skills.  We will enjoy their cooking styles as they suggest to us some new dishes to try during the pandemic.  Come on and check-out Chef LizzyJ, Chefnique, and Chef B.Todd.  Don't miss each unique style as they share some good food.  
DANCING MARY - Line Dance Your Way to Fitness
You have never experienced line dancing like "Dancin Mary"!  She will move you and groove you.  She has been booked all over Chicago and has become a force in the line dancing community.  
There will be breaks during the conference when you will have the opportunity to meet others with similar interests.  This is an opportunity to connect with our speakers, a company, or old friends.
At different points during the event the virtual exhibition hall will open for you to shop with our vendors. You can purchase beauty and skin care products, clothing, accessories; or find your next stylist, accountant, or PR marketing firm.
