Last year West Michigan Woman magazine hosted the inaugural Wine & Wig gala, supporting Susan G. Komen West Michigan. Through ticket sales, sponsorships, and a silent auction, we were able to raise nearly $15,000 for this local charity.

This year, the partner charity for Wine & Wig is up to you! We received nominations from many wonderful local charities that are helping our community every day, so our committee had a tough job narrowing it down to these six. Now we need your help! Help us determine which deserving charity will partner with us for the 2014 event—to be held on October 18, 2014, at the GRAM. Vote as often as you would like and please be sure to share! Voting closes at midnight on February 14, 2014.

 

Find your next adventure.

Make the most of your money.
