Junior League of Birmingham Little Black Dress Event

The Junior League of Birmingham held its third annual Little Black Dress Luncheon at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. Co-chaired by Kristin Hall and Melanie Esland, the Little Black Dress Initiative is an awareness campaign that aligns with the Junior League’s efforts to aid women in crisis in the community through the development of leadership and effective volunteerism. Two dynamic speakers, Blessing Adesiyan, founder and CEO of Mother Honestly and Amy Peterson, co-founder and CEO of Rebel Nell, shared their own inspiring journeys and stories of empowerment. Proceeds from this year’s sell-out event were almost double over last year.
