Organizers of "A Woman's Life Expo" are hoping for a large turnout today.

The free event will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center, 7745 Majors Road, Cumming.

Organizer Sue Wilson said the event is a fundraiser for Garden of Empowerment, a nonprofit that helps separated, divorced or widowed women.

This year's expo will feature about 95 vendors, said Wilson, adding that booths are sold out.

Vendors will provide a wide range of products and services, including health and wellness, beauty, fashion and culinary arts.

"There really is something for everyone," Wilson said. "You can have your teeth whitened and bring your old gold, silver and platinum to sell."

Besides vendors, the day will feature several demonstrations. Among them: ballroom dancing, fashion and bridal shows, taekwondo and belly dancing.

There will also be a number of raffle and door prizes, and goodie bags for the first few attendees.
