Are you ready to get wiggy?

Are you ready to get wiggy with it?
2018 was the 6th Annual Wine & Wig. The event is a perennial favorite that combines a light-hearted, fun-filled night of camaraderie with fundraising for a serious cause. Attendees enjoy food, wine and auctions all while wearing wigs as a sign of solidarity with women coping with breast cancer or a cancer treatment that causes hair loss.

Charity Partners

Four local cancer charities and West Michigan Woman Magazine have joined forces to find a cure for breast cancer and support local women with research, diagnostic, treatment and emotional support.

Featured speaker
Timothy Penning, Ph.D., APR, Fellow PRSA is a tenured professor who teaches courses in public relations and communication management in the School of Communications at Grand Valley State University. Tim’s wife, Cindy Kikkert-Penning, was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in February 2012, and a brain tumor in December 2013. Throughout her chemo, radiation, surgeries and countless appointments—which continue today—Tim has been by Cindy’s side. The pair were featured on WZZM last year as Cindy prepared for her 17th consecutive Fifth Third River Bank Run. Tim will share his perspective as a caregiver during a cancer journey.

Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

CityScene-RosaParksCircleWhat makes the ice rink so popular? Could it be the thrill of skating on West Michigan's first refrigerated outdoor skating rink? Or, the "joy of skating under the stars and on top of the stars" as stated by Lou Rabaut, President of the Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation. Perhaps it's the soaking in the ambiance given by Ecliptic - the notable artwork - designed by artist/architect Maya Lin.  Whatever the reason, the Rosa Parks Circle Ice Rink is a very cool place to visit.
