Smallville costars Kristen Kreuk and Allison Mack will be emcees at the gala dinner for the Young Women in Business's second annual Beyond Pink leadership conference.
Not only is Mack an actor, but she has also directed an episode of Smallville. That experience led to her opening a production company, Parvati Creative Inc., with Kreuk and Rose Bhura. Her company will focus on "human-centric films as seen through a female lens".
Keynote speakers at the dinner will include Katie Dunsworth and Andrea Baxter of the Vancouver-based Smart Cookies.
The dinner, to be held on November 14 (7 to 9:30 p.m.) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (655 Burrard Street), will cap off the two-day conference designed for young women to participate in workshops, discussions, and networking. (This year's theme is "stand up and stand out".)
50 more tickets for the gala dinner were released (gala-only tickets are $100), but the deadline for buying them is today (November 6). They can be purchased at the Beyond Pink Eventbrite page.
