Evelyn Flynn is a successful entrepreneur and owner of Adworks Promotions, Inc and Trade Show Wiz. Her entrepreneurial sprit led her to co-found Women, Wine, and Connections with Ellen Martinez. In the aftermath of the devastating 2016 floods in the Greater Baton Rouge Area, Evelyn saw the devastation her friends and clients were experiencing from losing their homes. She hit the ground running helping out by volunteering and witnessed first hand the impact such organizations like the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank has on the community during a time of devastation. Evelyn also realized that everyday, women and children are impacted by some type of devastating event, whether it gets televised or not.
Both Evelyn and Ellen planned monthly connection meetings for women in business. Feeling like this was missed opportunity for women to help women, they decided to apply for a 501(c)3 and turn their networking opportunities into opportunities that also help the community.
Utilizing her connections, love of wine, and desire to help women and children overcome hardships is how Women, Wine, and Connections continues to connect women professionally and personally while making a positive impact in our area.
