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.
Event Emcees
Rachael Gray and Ken Evans, co-hosts of The WHTS (105.3 Hot FM) Grand Rapids Morning Show will be joining us at Wine & Wig 2018.
