Tracy Mourning Wilson and Honey Shine, Inc celebrated it's 14th Annual Hats Off Luncheon and 10th Anniversary of Camp Honey Shine recognizing the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart and the Carnival Foundation for their unwavering commitment in recognizing that goodwill and corporate citizenship go hand-in hand and I was honored to be in attendance It was my first time attending so I really wasn't sure what to expect but after just mere moments of entering the Hilton Hotel I knew I was going to witness amazement! Let's take a look!

When I entered the venue the very first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful atmosphere and scenery. There were beautiful colors everywhere, guests were greeting and hugging one another and mimosas, bubbly, and h'orderves were flowing freely. I almost felt like I was on the scene of a Tyler Perry Wedding. Beyond Gorgeous! As I worked my way around the room I felt so honored and welcomed seeing all the women in their beautiful hats knowing we all came together to support such a beautiful cause. I immediately headed over to the red Carpet and allowed my camera to take in the magic!
I think this was one of my most favorite hats of the Luncheon. It was creative, different, springy and beyond Fab! Added plus was the ensemble that accompanied the hat!

Hats, Hat's and More Hats was the theme and for these Ladies it was all about adding color and that Wow factor to their hats!

Once the red carpet was completed we headed into the ballroom which had an unbelievably beautiful setting! It was stunning! Salads we're awaiting everyone at their tables and the luncheon was all set to begin!

It was so nice to see such a beautiful collection of Women coming together for such a needed community cause. Cathy Hughes joins Tracy Mourning and friends for a little red carpet fun.
You already know your girl had to hit the red carpet. I'm normally not a hat person but after the Hat's Off Luncheon that's definitely going to change.
Just when I thought the event couldn't get any better we were invited to the Ballroom Level Terrace for an Post event Party sponsored by BET and Centric which was remarkable! There was a live band, (video above), coffee/tea, lots of photo ops and event attendees enjoying each others company all in the name of a great cause. Needless to say the Hats Off Luncheon was a huge success for HoneyShine Inc and the Honey Bugs. While it was my very first time having the pleasure of attending the Hat's Off Luncheon you can rest assured it won't be my last.
