Sisterly Love Collective Work / Shop, Cocktail Reception, and Auction

The Sisterly Love Collective is hosting a work / shop event in partnership with The Deacon in recognition of Women’s History Month. In the afternoon, Sisterly Love Work / Shop will feature a half-day workshop featuring a mix of panels and demos at the intersection of food, business, and lifestyle. There will be vendors selling their women-owned and made goods throughout the day. Immediately following the last workshop, the collective will host a cocktail reception featuring a variety of dishes from top Philadelphia female chefs and restaurateurs.

Additionally, our online silent auction is now open! Bid on the many experiences and products donated by top male chefs. All proceeds will go to Sisterly Love.
