Sep. 8—Join the Aiken Standard in celebrating women next month with its Women Today Luncheon.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, at Newberry Hall, 117 Newberry St., said Diane Daniell, the advertising sales manager for the Aiken Standard. Attendees will hear from Terry Lee, the founder and executive director of Overflow Foundation. The topic for the event is "Moving from Surviving to Thriving."

"I chose Terry because she is an awesome speaker, well known in the community, and very passionate in helping families cope with addictions," Daniell said.

According to their website, Overflow Foundation was created in 2019 by a mother who was dealing with the loss of her child who died by suicide in 2018.

"Noting the rise in suicide rates by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the National Council for Behavioral Health, Overflow Foundation desires to join the fight against suicide by infusing hope into the lives of individuals and families who have been affected by suicide, mental illness, and SUDs," according to their website.

Tickets for the event cost $25 and can be purchased at Ginger Bee Boutique, 110 Laurens St. S.W.; Lionel Smith Ltd., 132 Laurens St. S.W.; Unique Expressions, 1521 Whiskey Road; both locations of Vikki's Unique Boutique, 1501 Whiskey Road and 1032 Pine Log Road; and the Aiken Standard office, 326 Rutland Drive. Tickets can also be purchased online at tickets.aikenstandard.com.

"(This is a) great way to celebrate the contributions women make to our communities and embrace the importance of increasingly bringing women into leadership roles, be it in business, in the military, in faith organizations and beyond," Daniell said about the event.
