Where It’s Okay To Be Girly!

Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™

8 CITIES • 8 BRUNCHES • ENDLESS CONNECTIONS

Brunching since 2009

Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ organization uses the ultimate brunch experience to give women a place to gather, have fun and brunch with purpose. From its inception until now, a portion of all proceeds goes to charity. And countless women have created lasting and meaningful friendships building powerful networks and deliberately tapping into the undeniable force created when women build community.

“We never could have realized that this meeting would lead to such special friendships.”

Jill - Attendee

How it all

Got Started

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ started with a few friends in Raleigh. Years later it attracts thousands of women from around the country. The goal is simple: To connect women and promote meaningful and lasting connections. “We are doing something that hasn’t been done before and it’s exciting,” comments the organization’s Founder, Lana Hunter. She continues, “To host a brunch annually for over 10 years with this large group of women with no celebrity endorsements or big name brand supporters is major. But our goal of connecting women, fostering friendships and collaborations is why we started and why we continue.”

About Our Founder

Lana Hunter

Founder

My name is Lana Hunter, and I am the founder and host of the Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™! Thank you for stopping by!

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™got its start in Raleigh, NC. Now we’re all over the country. We started is the exact reason we have continued; it is because of YOU! No really! We’ve met some incredible women and had great conversations, laughter, and even some tears over the years. Each time I walk into a room full of women who are all dressed up, having the time of their life, meeting new girlfriends, and snapping pictures, I’m over the moon with joy. I’m always so hoping someone will leave smiling harder than when they came, meet a new friend or two, or make a connection that will forever impact their lives. As long as you continue to show up, I will continue to show up for you!

When it all started, I had no idea this whole thing would spread as it has to date – 8 cities and even an international presence in the Bahamas and Mexico. A dream come true. I simply wanted girlfriends to connect.  

Our growth throughout the years could not have happened without the support of my amazing husband Marc, my bestie and co-host, Melissa Nixon, and many dear friends and supporters. I’m blessed beyond measure and don’t take it lightly. For real – no kidding! When I’m not hosting brunches, I enjoy my role as events and operations manager for an organization, volunteering somewhere, spending time with friends and family, and brunching every chance I get!

I can’t wait to meet you in a city near you!
