On Saturday December 7th Venus Williams stopped by Mission Hills Country Club to showcase her tennis and active wear line, EleVen by Venus. Inspired by her legendary tennis career, Venus wanted to create a clothing line that did not restrict movement and that “allowed you to express your individuality, cultivate strength and confidence and makes you feel good every time you put it on” (quote courtesy of https://elevenbyvenus.com/).
To exhibit her clothes, Venus put on a fashion show at Mission Hills, which was a huge success! Members were so excited about the clothes that they even bought quite a few items at the Pro Shop after the show.
Aside from the fashion show, there was a Q&A session with Venus where she reflected on her tennis career. Incase you didn’t know, Venus holds 22 Grand Slam titles (seven in singles, 13 in women’s doubles and two in mixed doubles), is considered one of the best grass court players, is a former World No. 1 ranked player and is an all-time great in women’s tennis! Oh, did we forget to mention the four Olympic gold medals she won too? Needless to say, Venus has had an amazing tennis career and has a promising future with her clothing line and other endeavors.
EleVen’s motto “look good, play well” was illustrated at Mission Hills not only in the fashion show that took place, but on the faces of all the Members wearing their new clothes.
Congratulations to Florida State University for clinching the Atlantic Coast Conference title this weekend after a 45-7 victory over Duke University. FSU is now set to play Auburn University in theBCS Championship at the Rose Bowl on January 6, 2014.
Over the weekend, the University Center Club at FSU hosted a banquet for the football team in their ballroom. Tim Drown, Regional Executive Chef at UCC, even displayed a special ice carving for the team! It was a great evening to celebrate and honor the Seminoles' achievement.
