Why I started BEB: BEB originally began with me inviting four friends to brunch for some laughs and good food. I don’t even think we had cocktails at that brunch (GASP!). We had such a good time that I decided I’d do it again the next month and tell those women to invite other women they thought would enjoy themselves. A year later, we had a pretty large group of women and I jokingly gave us the name Brown Eyed Brunchaholics. It was catchy and restaurants loved us. Women saw us in a restaurant from the street and walked in and asked how they could join. It was amazing! I would sit back and look at this dynamic group of women and think, “Wow! We are more than just a group of women brunching, we are becoming an organization.” I saw women befriending other women, helping other women, being the shoulders for women to cry on, and sharing engagement and baby announcements. It was heartwarming. Then I decided that we would do something more purposeful for not just our group, but for others and the causes that we believed in. And so, the Brown Eyed Brunchaholics became the Brown Eyed Beauties Social Networking Group. We work hard to advocate for the awareness of a number of causes, and while we still brunch regularly and have a great time doing it, we now Brunch With A Purpose (#BWAP).
