Cheers and Chocolate at the CIM March 4th - A Sweet Way to Benefit Every Woman's Place

In Muskegon, it would be GREAT if we didn't need the services of Every Woman's Place, for that matter, anywhere that didn't need a women's shelter would be great.  Unfortunately, the work and service has to be there.  It's up to all of us to protect the most vulnerable people in our community, and knowing that Every Woman's Place is there and operates the way it does speaks volumes of the good people in Muskegon who keep it so vital.

From the Every Woman's Place website - "The Mission of Every Woman’s Place is to improve and enhance the lives of women, youth, children and families in crisis in our community by providing and advocating for services which lead to their safety, their emotional and economic self-sufficiency, their productivity, and their ability to participate fully in our society."  It's not just a place to "hide out" till a problem goes away, it's a chance to learn self sufficiency to better their life and change....for good.

Through the year, there are a few ways you can help benefit this organization and have a pretty good time doing it.  There's Power of the Purse in the Fall, you can always use Amazon Smile, make a donation through the EWP website or you can come out and tempt your taste buds at Cheers and Chocolate at the Culinary Institute of Michigan on March 4th.

Cheers and Chocolate combines the experience of culinary delights along with fine wines, craft beers, desserts and cool items to bid on stretching over the entire 3 floors of the CIM in beautiful Downtown Muskegon.  If nothing else, it's fun to just stroll through and see the school and what the students there are creating.  I was able to attend last year and WOW!  It's kind of over stimulating with the tastes, textures and setting.  I'd highly recommend a visit.

Jenny McNeill is on the Board of Directors for Every Woman's Place, and she's also a great sponsor of the Positively Muskegon Blog with her firm Ladas Hoopes and McNeill.  I had a chance to catch up with her to talk about this years event.  Take a listen!

I'd love to tell you that this blog, this event and our good wishes will end domestic abuse...but it won't.  We need to make sure that those most vunerable have a place to turn.  We need to show victims of abuse that they are cared for, there are resources for them and that in their time of need, Muskegon was there for them.  That's how great communities are built and we're proud to support such a great event as Cheers and Chocolate to help protect those in need.  Click below and get your tickets today!!
