Meet our Founder

The Chivalry Club is a gentlemen’s club and fraternal club to the Savvy, Sexy & Social Women's Club, also founded by Keula Binelly. Keula is a native of Brazil who moved to the U.S. in 2005 searching for the American Dream. She started all alone and on her own, without speaking the language, and without knowing a soul. In 14 years, Keula has had incredible accomplishments – most importantly building a vast network of amazing people.

Her passion for God, fashion, food, people, and enthusiasm for life is contagious. Keula’s goal is to inspire men and women to discover their essence every day, to be kind to themselves and to others, and find balance and fun in life.

Keula Says…

I’m a wife, mom, friend, and busy entrepreneur. I’ve worked over the years to overcome depression and find balance and happiness in my life. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Life is too short to not enjoy to the fullest.

Where it all began…

When I married my husband Scott Fletcher (the center of the above picture) and moved to Great Falls, we loved to entertain and host lavish, extravagant parties in our home. People in the DMV who attended our parties started to tell their friends what an amazing time they had and the word started spreading around town. Soon, I had men and women reaching out and asking how they could be included on our guest list.

Through my hard work, networking, and friendships, I have built a sterling reputation as someone genuine, trustworthy…and always brings the party! I always believe in inclusivity and the goodness of others. I live my life fearlessly and without excessive anxiety. I trust my gut and I trust my “GOD.” I believe your vibe attracts your tribe and that’s why I have found myself surrounded by so many incredible individuals!

After building a vast network with amazing people and getting to know them better, I noticed that the majority of us don’t have enough balance in life. And unfortunately, some of us live our lives trying to be someone we’re not. Last year, I founded the Savvy, Sexy & Social Women’s Club, an enthusiastic group of women across the Washington, DC area who come together regularly for inspiration and networking. Plus, lots of parties and fun!

The club became such a tremendous success and went above and beyond my expectations in only one year. We have over 170 women in SSS, and then, men started asking why they could not join as well! After so many requests, I decided to create the Chivalry Club as the fraternal club of our Savvy, Sexy & Social Club.

Most of us strive to live our lives to the fullest–to grow in ways that lead us to fulfillment and happiness.

And that’s what the Chivalry Club is about…

Getting away from the demands and stress in your life, cut loose, and enjoy a fun time with friends.

At our Chivalry Club, we host several events throughout the month just for men, and many more events, some that cross over with our women’s Savvy, Sexy & Social Club (so, don’t worry, gentlemen, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet and mingle with the ladies!).

Married? That’s great! This club is not for single men only. If you’re married, your wife might be interested in joining our Savvy, Sexy, & Social Women’s Club. There will be exclusive events to have a great time together!

Public Relations Assistant

I joined Savvy, Sexy, and Social in August 2018, I'm behind the scenes and sometimes on the scene and now I’m happy to help with the Chivalry Club. It is a true honor and great pleasure be working with Keula! It’s been a magical and transformational experience to work with such a strong woman who’s purpose is to encourage and inspire women, she allows God to work through her, while always focusing on helping others.

I am writing some of the content on her website, making sure I get her "Port-English" out, while preserving her style and passion to convey the message that is true to her. I write press releases, the blog/newsletters, some FB posts, helping create graphics for events, scheduling events, posting events and working on the website, and networking at events. Now, we are great friends and I truly love my time with Keula!
