WGTS 91.9 hosted more than 2,200 women at the recent “Dare to Be” women’s event with Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill at the Hylton Christian Event Center (Va.). The station has hosted this event for the past six years. This year’s theme of “Speak to the Storm” addressed the lives of women in this area, many of which faced two lost paychecks through the government shutdown. Organizers offered free tickets to any woman who wished to attend with a federal government employee badge. Through music, prayer and the inspirational messages Natalie and Charlotte encouraged women to live their roles as wives, moms, employees, daughters and friends to the fullest.
Welcoming the crowd were the women of WGTS; Stacey Stone, Blanca Vega and Becky Alignay (pictured). They along with everyone in attendance learned that they are capable of accomplishing their God-given dreams with His help. “It is the one night of the year that we celebrate being a woman of God,” shares morning show co-host Blanca Vega. “We were blessed by the message and the women in attendance that were so joyful about how God is caring for them in their storm.”
