About this Event

The 11th Annual Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™

2020 Theme: We see you!

What is the Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™?

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ organization uses the ultimate brunch experience to give women a place to gather, have fun, and brunch with purpose. Designed specifically for and by women, creating meaningful connections and igniting the vast power of women in the community. Raleigh is the flagship location for the very first brunch in 2009. From its inception until now, a portion of all proceeds goes to charity. And countless women have created lasting and meaningful friendships building robust networks and deliberately tapping into the undeniable force created when women build community.

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch™ started with a few friends in Raleigh. 11 years later, it attracts thousands of women from around the country and world. The goal is simple: To connect women and promote meaningful and lasting connections.

So we invite all mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and bffs to join us for brunch in a city near you!

Who’s hosting this brunch?

The Sundress & Big Hat Brunch is hosted by its founder, Lana Hunter, her co-host and best friend, Melissa Nixon, and a team of countless friends and supporters who help with spreading the word, preparation, set-up, and so much more.
