Who doesn’t love a fabulous Girlfriend Event? Count me in any time of the year!

Fortunately for women living in and around Cape Coral, Florida, Mary Kay Independent Senior Sales Director Jan Adams has mastered the art of hosting frequent Girlfriend Events. She makes sure women always have something exciting to look forward to. At each event, she announces intriguing details of the next one coming up!

In April there’s the lively Annual Tea Cup Auction, supported by Southwest Florida independent sales force members. May brings a fashion show held in honor of Mary Kay Ash’s birthday. In the fall, attendees enjoy a luncheon and fashion show at a favorite restaurant, followed by shopping. And nobody wants to miss the special holiday happenings, like the 2016 dinner theater outing.

Jan, an Ambassador for The Mary Kay Foundation℠, loves bringing women together for fun, fellowship and a cause close to her heart — fundraising for The Foundation. What a joyful way to make a difference in the lives of women!

“Women want to help women,” states Jan. “They want to be involved and know they are making a difference. When we hold a fundraiser, we do it with a servant's heart.”

There’s been no stopping dynamo Jan since a speaker at Seminar inspired her to step up more to support The Foundation’s mission 13 years ago.

Jan started with simple ventures and built partnerships with local merchants like restaurants, clothing stores and theaters. Keeping events a win-win-win for everyone involved is her secret to continuous success.

She selflessly donates countless hours of her time and unique items for take-away goodie bags and auctions.

“Bringing women together throughout the year gives us the opportunity to update them regularly on what The Foundation accomplishes,” emphasizes Jan. “They can learn about the progress made concerning the critical mission and see where their donations go.

“I love that I can put my heart into my Mary Kay business,” Jan says. “I remind myself to plant the right things, and the right things will come. I thank Mary Kay Ash for teaching me to always move forward.”
