12th Annual Sisters and Friends Getaway to Martha’s Vineyard Gives Black Women an Opportunity to Network, Bond, Relax and Rejuvenate

Looking for a way to extend the summer? Join Sisters and Friends Getaway to Martha’s Vineyard for a last minute vacation. After 12 years of hosting women for a relaxing and rejuvenating week on the Vineyard, host Connie Portis will soon be moving on to explore new ventures.

Sisters and Friends is comprised of women from around the country who share a week together exploring Martha’s Vineyard, participating in workshops, joining in book discussions, and networking with sisterfriends. Portis says, “Women come, all ages, and at varying stages in life. They come as strangers and leave as lifelong friends.”

More than 150 women will participate this year. The first week, September 9-16 has filled with women from as far away as California and Alaska. Space is available the second week, September 16-22. The women are all ages and at varying stage in life.

In addition to Tedder’s presentation, discussion titles include “Our Voice, Our Activism” with Valerie McDonald-Roberts, former Pittsburgh City Council member and “Glam 101” led by cosmetologist and makeup artist Shakita Hollis-Poag.

With times so tough and many wanting to save and forgo vacations, this is the perfect opportunity to get away, experience a wonderful place, and join with other women while not spending a lot of money. During the weeks, Portis promises a tutorial session on how to plan, market, and grow a Sisters and Friends type getaway.
