It started locally, and now it's expanding: Dames Bond, a Columbus-based organization, is celebrating the launch of its Nashville chapter. Created by Mary B. Relotto in 2006, the group serves as a professional network of women to resources and other organizations. With two current Ohio locations, Dames Bond will make its way to Nashville in January 2012. But that's not all – Dames Bond is also starting a non-profit organization. Called bondAID, it will help provide financial support to business owners as well as current non-profits. Visit for more information about the group and their endeavors, or read our Capital Style article on Dames Bond from our September/October 2011 issue.
