May AWOB Tradeshow — “aMayZing Showcase” — Featuring a Mother and Daughter Who Own Businesses



Alliance of Women Owned Businesses


The a-MAY-Zing Showcase on May 8th at the Inn at Gig Harbor offers a first time opportunity for women business owners to collectively display their accomplishments. A special zing for Mother’s Day week will be provided by two entrepreneurs who just happen to be mother and daughter. The mother, Darlene Moscho, an independent representative for Seacret Minerals from the Dead Sea, and the daughter, Sheree Reed, owner of Organize It with Sheree, each have unique story to tell.

For mothers, who are wondering how they might find more time to be at home, or to have more flexible work hours, or to be their own boss, Moscho and Reed offer excellent examples of ways to make it happen.

Moscho has always been moved by the ability to help others. When she discovered the relief Seacret products offered her friends, she took her business acumen from over 25 years in a home-based business specializing in helping women find the perfect fit bra for their body type and turned it into fostering a multi-national skin care business.

During the Reeds transition from Tacoma to Bremerton, Reed used her time to help her mother organize her office and file system. She quickly found she was very good at organizing and had a passion for helping women get their lives in order. In 2006, Organize It with Sheree was born.

The common thread for both mother and daughter and many of their colleagues in the south and west Sound was, and is, the ability to recognize and seize the opportunity. The a-MAY-Zing Showcase, which will be open to the public from 5:00 to 8:00, is a celebration of the achievements of local women business owners. Among the color and excitement of this Showcase will be a sampling of the exhibitors’ products and services along with complementary appetizers and a no-host bar.

The Showcase is sponsored by the Alliance of Women Owned Businesses (AWOB), a growing voice for the 500 plus women-owned business in the south and west Sound area AWOB was created in 2010 as a venue for female entrepreneurs to come together to mentor, inspire, motivate, teach and support one another. As AWOB has grown, so has the group’s aspirations. As this inaugural trade show has taken shape, AWOB president, Lisa Markman, observed, “We couldn’t be prouder of our members and are truly excited about this unique opportunity for the female entrepreneurs of the south and west Sound to receive the recognition they deserve. We sincerely hope this amazing event will focus a brighter light upon the women business owners and the vital role they play in our community. We warmly invite, in fact encourage, the public to join us for this a-MAY-Zing occasion.”
