GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Professional women from across the Twin Cities will be coming together for Encourage Her Network's Signature Women's Networking Event. It is an opportunity to surround yourself with the Twin Cities most encouraging women who are founders, creators, connectors, and women who mean business.

The luncheon taking place on Monday, October 17, will feature natural food industry pioneer, Lynn Gordon who is the founder of French Meadow Bakery. She began promoting health, wellness and environmentalism as a certified macrobiotic cooking teacher consulting with terminal illness in the early 80's. Gordon joined us on KARE11 News@4 to share some of the "secrets" of her success.

Lynn’s string of business successes also includes the Isle Bun & Coffee Company, the revival of Seattle-based Rainier Natural Foods, and People Organic Coffee and Wine Cafés.

Encourage Her Network's Signature Women's Networking Event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on October 17 at the Grand Stay Hotel & Conference in Apple Valley. Encourage Her Network is the Twin Cities professional community of women inspiring other women.
