Welcome to GWENS!

About Us


Who We Are

We are Shanon and Shea Shumpert.  In 2000, we began hosting a diverse group of women for our Annual Tea Event.  Our invitees include attorneys, educators, doctors, CEOs, counselors, entrepreneurs, and everything in between, representing all industries.  We network while celebrating our accomplishments and revel in the positive environment created by the warmth and welcoming nature of our guests.  

In  2013, we added a fundraising element to the event where guests were asked to make a monetary contribution towards our selected charity.  


Our Vision and Purpose

GWENS champions women in need. We partner with established charities to help expand their reach.  Past funding recipients include: Clara's House, Project Hope - Marillac St. Vincent Family Services, Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) and the Well of Mercy.


Our Mission

GWENS strives to empower and support all women but primarily women in crisis. We host fundraising events to raise both funds and awareness while we network and socialize with each other -- in an all female setting -- where we can focus on our unique needs.
