The Sisterhood Extravaganza: Turning Tragedy Into Triumph

So what IS the Sisterhood Extravaganza?

The Sisterhood Extravaganza supports and promotes women and girls in any and all endeavors throughout life, relationships, and business. 

Educating women and instilling empowerment to rise above adversities and building one's self-esteem is a strong focus of the Sisterhood. 

Founder/CEO Pat Gillum has dedicated her life to personally and professionally coaching individuals and businesses in areas of growth and development. Creating a positive path in life leads to success.

Pat Gillum's own fruitful life gave her cause to establish the Sisterhood Extravaganza Organization in order to build a foundation of women who uplift and inspire each other through collaborations of education and exposure to like-minded values. 


Pat Gillum alongside seventeen co-authors penned a phenomenal book which touches the very soul of its readers.

Each woman told their tale.

When they say there is strength in numbers, they mean there is STRENGTH in numbers. Each chapter is rich in feelings and genuineness. Some women spoke on issues in which many of us can relate. Others spoke about life-altering situations in which they felt emptied.

Keynote Speaker Aqueela Maddox delivered a powerful message on building trust and lasting relationships through spiritual beliefs and positiveness. 

"Helping individuals Live their BEST life" is a mission of Aqueela's.

To celebrate the release of the book "Empowering Women To Succeed...Turning Tragedy Into Triumph" a shindig was held at the Halle Heart Museum which turned out to be a phenomenal children's museum dedicated to a healthier lifestyle for our kiddos. 


"Our mission is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all we do. The need for our work is beyond question."
