This spring, when Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM) staff and volunteer committee members sat down to plan the Charlevoix and Cheboygan Women Can/Women Do fundraising luncheons, uncertainty remained about hosting in-person events due to the ongoing pandemic. As a result, the first two of four annual luncheons shifted to Gourment-To-Go events with curbside service.  The creativity of hard-working volunteers and the flexibility of those who supported the Gourmet-To-Go concept helped ensure the success of these two events.

Women Can/Women Do luncheons in Otsego and Emmet county will be held as the traditional in-person luncheons. We are grateful for the opportunity to once again gather together, visit with friends, make new acquaintances and raise vital dollars for WRCNM survivor services.

Please join us at these beloved, exquisitely designed Women Can/Women Do events:

Women Can/Women Do-Otsego will be held at the beautiful Sojourn Lakeside Resort in Gaylord from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 17.  Sojourn offers an elegant, rustic space that is both nostalgic and stunning. To reserve/donate online, click here.

Women Can/Women Do-Emmet will be held at the magnificent and gracious Bay Harbor Yacht Club-Lange Center in Petoskey from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 8.  The Lange Center is a luxurious venue that overlooks Lake Michigan. To reserve/donate online, click here.

Both events will feature beautiful and unique table designs courtesy of dedicated volunteer Table Designers.  The Emmet County event will also have an extensive silent auction.

“This program and my counselor have helped me more than I can express. My counselor is knowledgeable and has empathy. She encouraged and guided me through some very uncomfortable and stressful situations.  Without her help and support, I don’t know if I would have made it through. She is my saving angel. You’ve all made a huge impact on me and helped me heal.”
