‘Classy,’ ‘fun’ and ‘amazing’ are some of the words guests have used to describe a ladies-only Christmas party held Saturday, December 6, 2014, the event’s hostess said.

Pastor Rochelle Brown of Authentic Life Church and leader of its women’s ministry Authentic Chicks Rock, hosted the gala filled with music-inspired games, comedy and prize giveaways including designer handbags and quirky novelties.

“As wives, mothers, daughters [and] caretakers we often times put others before ourselves,” Brown said. “So I wanted to ensure that the environment would be set for each lady to leave all of their concerns and the many hats they wear at the door, and have a day of fun!”

Approximately 145 ladies from the Philadelphia-area, and some travelling from as far as Maryland attended the event held at the Hilton Philadelphia City Ave.

Hundreds of toiletries donated by guests will also go to local recovery homes for women including Divine Light, which is located next door to Authentic Life Church, Brown said.

“Though we are in the beginning stages of our ministry, we’ve always desired to help women’s organizations,” Brown said. “We have donated clothes, shoes, & accessories, along with assisting with sorting clothing at Dress for Success, and this year we decided to be a blessing to the ladies at Divine Light.”

Brown and her husband Pastor Lester hold a 90-minute non-denominational church service every Sunday at 10 a.m. at The Luther Rogers Center for Education and the Arts, 4809 Germantown Ave. 19144.
