Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™?

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ is a women’s networking and empowerment event. It’s designed to build powerful connections, confidence, and encourage self-care. It is the ultimate girls day out. 2019 will be our ten-year anniversary and we will be traveling to 10 cities around the country.

We also always want to give more than we take and give back to causes that impact women and children. We firmly believe as Mother Theresa said, “One person can’t do everything, but every person can do one thing”. This is what we do!
