Women social networking and empowerment group My Go to Gal celebrated its members and overwhelming success at the official launch party over the weekend.
Over 100 ladies crowded Rubicon Bar & Restaurant in Essendon for an afternoon of fashion, friendship and fearless women inspiring each other to achieve their dreams.
My Go to Gal members entered the venue and were greeted by a women’s wonderland; goody bags, a flower wall, balloons, a photo booth, pumping music, drinks flowing, an array of food and plenty of like-minded women waiting to meet their newest girlfriends.
An exciting buzz filled the room as professional photographers and videographers captured the event, turning the experience into everlasting memories.
My Go to Gal founder Alyssa Ho addressed the adoring attendees, who have been the driving force behind the group’s success.
The humbled founder said that following months of deliberation, she decided to just launch the group and let the public response dictate the path and future of My Go to Gal.
“We launched in March this year, and traditionally one would have their launch party not long after, but I didn’t know if this was something people would be interested in and I didn’t think it was going to become as big as it has today,” Alyssa said.
“I owe everyone here a big thank you for playing a huge part in bringing this vision to life with me.”
The main event of the afternoon was a panel discussion featuring four successful Girl Bosses, sharing their stories of success, hard work and self belief.
Skinny Me Tea’s Gretta Rose van Riel, Zachary the Label founder Effie Kats, Danielle’s Artwork by Danielle Weber and Eliya the Label’s Louise Elia joined Alyssa in an hour long Q&A, with the Melbourne entrepreneurs captivating the adoring crowd.
They remained transparent with their stories and advice on business, discussing the rise and falls of the industry and how the growth of their businesses has influenced their lives both positively and negatively.
Finishing to a roaring round of applause, the energy around the room lifted with dozens of inspired women quickly returning to business and social networking.
While this wasn’t the first My Go to Gal event, it was the official launch of a future filled with prosperity and strengthening women around the world.
Event attendee Laura Astone was blown away by the launch, and cannot wait for what’s to come.
“I felt really proud to be at the launch. To say I can be a part of something like this is really exciting,” Laura said.
“It was an empowering environment filled with strong boss women!”
With such a strong support network online, My Go to Gal member Adriana Bramante believed the same energy was translated to real life and connections were strong between the women in the room.
“It feels so good to be welcomed into a place full of love and warmth and surrounded by good energy,” she said.
“It’s the type of thing you want to see grow. I’ve definitely benefited from it so I’d love to hear people’s stories how they have to.”
Following My Go to Gal’s fourth event in Melbourne, the group is now looking to expand and host events interstate and internationally.
