GentleWoman inauguration gala is exceptional event which requires remarkable coverage. The mixture of elegance, chic and tradition is something which we can undoubtedly find in legendary Hotel MONOPOL in Katowice, where we will honour with the statuettes “Pearls of GentleWoman” ladies which are proving through their actions and image to be icons of style, class and entrepreneurship. We will meet on June 11th during the solemn night, to be able to admire a fashion show with accompaniment of a piano in a company of wine and distinguished dishes and more importantly to honour GentleWoman from the region in following categories: GentleWoman’s Personality, Business and Invitation, Community Work, Culture, art, passion, eGentleWoman and Fashion and Style.
Thanks to these awards we believe that more women will learn about the valuable activities and will be inspired to start working on their own projects. We want to dare, encourage activities, support and reward. It is all to make the idea of GentleWoman – fulfilled woman – more available.
The most prominent guests of the hotel
Women present at Gala are only just a part of the distinguished guests, which in the past Hotel MONOPOL had the pleasure to host. Among them we can mention Karol Szymanowski, outstanding composer, who lived in MONOPOL in May of 1934 and Jan Kiepura excellent Polish tenor who lived in the hotel several times.
