BOND Inc’s Meet & Greet is Coming Your Way
There are many added benefits of being a BOND Girl. (Click here to find out more)   As a BOND Girl you gain access to exclusive offers, you get reduced and often times free entrance to many of BOND Inc’s sponsored events.  More importantly, you will be a part of a major sisterhood of women who are doing amazing things personally and professionally. We are planning a BOND Girl Meet & Greet for the month of April. If you’re interested in learning more about BOND Inc and want to be a part of this amazing network be sure to email us for all of the details.  At this Meet & Greet you will have the opportunity to ask questions, come onboard as a member, and witness the induction ceremony of our newest BOND Girls. This is also a great opportunity to network with women from all across the DMV. This won’t be your typical Meet & Greet so prepare to as always have a grand time.

Our doors are always open, so if you’re interested in becoming an active member be sure to email us at for more details and a membership application.

Where Should We Begin ~First Poetry & Presents Event= Major Success
Where should I begin…hmmm maybe I could start with all 15 phenomenal poets that came from as far as New York to pour out their heart and soul to an amazing crowd of men and women. Or should I start with our gracious host Mina Holladay who was in her element once she graced us with her presence. Or better yet, maybe I’ll start with the best girls any one could have, my loving BOND Sisters who worked hard right alongside me to ensure that this event was a major success.   Or I could easily start with the number of supportive sponsors who unselfishly gave in order for us to create a wonderful evening. Let’s not forget Rashada Pullen, a remarkable painter whom we watched transform an empty canvas into a beautiful masterpiece.  If I mention her, I must also mention, DJ Cebo who was always on point, playing the right tunes, just at the right time.  Or I could easily mention the surprise proposal that stunned a new bride to be and brought tears to the eyes of many.  Or how about those amazing photographers (Franklin Withers Photography and Yokography) that captured moments that won’t do us any justice with just words.
