Are you ready to get wiggy with it?
2020 is the 8th 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.

Executive Director
Scratch Branding and Funky Buddha Yoga
Brilliant Connector

Anna is generous of spirit, committed to community and a champion of others. She created the West Side Artists Project in order to connect the west side business community with area artists.

Director of Organizational Development & Leadership Training
Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital

Emily is the top nursing recruiter and now director of Organizational Development and Leadership Training at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital. As head recruiter for the nursing division, she helped increase the number of inpatient nurses by over 230 percent and decreased nursing turnover.

CEO & President
Brilliant Woman of the Year

To start as a project manager on a team of six people, to eventually running a company of over 200 people with offices in GR, MN and Detroit is amazing. Meredith somehow manages to personally connect with everyone on staff and yet step back and make solid decisions for the business.
