Indulge in Chocolate at GVSU Women's Center Fundraiser

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

All-you-can-eat chocolate desserts for a good cause? Count us in! Check out the Grand Valley State University Women's Center's ninth annual "Indulge for a Cause" Thursday, February 21 from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Eberhard Center on the Pew Grand Rapids Campus.

Proceeds from the event, including a silent auction, will benefit Women’s Center programs and their endowment fund. The center offers scholarships to non-traditional students who may not otherwise qualify for financial aid.

Sweet desserts will be provided by local companies including Cabot Cheese, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and San Chez Bistro. The event is co-sponsored by Founders Bank & Trust, United Bank, and the University Bookstore.

Tickets are $10 for students and $30 for community members in advance; $15 for students and $35 for community members at the door. Reserve tickets by calling the Women’s Center at (616) 331-2748 or purchase online.

Since the Women’s Center was founded in 2001, it has assisted hundreds of students each year, hosted more than six hundred programs, raised more than $100,000 for organizations that work with women and girls, and provided dozens of non-profit agencies with volunteers.
