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.

MomsBloom's mission is to provide practical help and emotional support during times of transition for growing families. MomsBloom has served over 850 families through its Flourishing Families Program since 2008 by connecting them to community members who understand how isolating, overwhelming, and emotionally challenging brining home a new baby can be. This accomplishment was achieved by training close to 300 volunteers who understand our current society. Families often live hundreds of miles away from extended family and even if they are close by, they are busy with work and other obligations and don't have the time to provide the suport that past generations did. MomsBloom is known as the extended family for the twenty-first century.
