Eighth Annual Wine, Women and Chocolate Event to Benefit the Women's Resource Center




The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is hosting its eighth annual Wine, Women and Chocolate event on October 22 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Thousand Oaks Golf Club (4100 Thousand Oaks Drive Grand Rapids, MI 49525).  Attendees will enjoy an evening of wine, beer and chocolate tastings while sampling hors d'oeuvres, bidding on silent auction prizes and learning more about the WRC.  Proceeds from the event will help fund the WRC’s services and programing.


 “Wine, Women and Chocolate event is the Women’s Resource Center’s annual friend-raiser,” said Terri Demeter, development and communications manager at Women’s Resource Center.  “Our goal is to raise awareness for the services and programs we provide the community while providing a fun evening out for friends and co-workers.”


Since 1973, the WRC has empowered nearly 40,000 women in West Michigan to achieve economic independence through meaningful employment.   Services and programs provided by the WRC include everything from life skill workshops and mentoring support to personalized career planning sessions and providing professional clothing for job interviews.


“At the heart of everything we do is the goal of economic independence for women, regardless of their current situation,” said Demeter.  “Along the way our programs and services have grown to more effectively motivate and inspire our participants, while giving voice to all women who seek meaningful employment in our community.”


Tickets to Wine, Women and Chocolate cost $40.00 and can be purchased at
