The women of WIN are an encouraging group to be around and spend time with. I always learn more about myself, others, and our community. The atmosphere is upbeat, positive, and welcoming.
As a member of WIN I truly feel I am part of something special and impactful. We are small but mighty and our pursuits or works are healing, helpful and evident in the actions and messages we pass forward to and for others.
Girls Night Out Event
For over 10 years, WIN (formerly BPW) has been hosting a Girlfriend's Night Out fundraising event to raise money for our mentoring program. We have been blessed to have many homeowners that have opened up their beautiful homes to host this event. It is usually held in the spring at a fabulous home on one of our area lakes. We serve wine and hors d'oeuvres as women tour the home and shop with vendors. Women-owned businesses, direct sales companies and women entrepreneurs have booths set up all over the house and garage for people to purchase items as they browse. We also have a silent auction with items that have been donated from local businesses that support our mentoring program. It is a fun evening of shopping, visiting and raising money for a great cause. Because of COVID, we have had to pause our event the last two years, but we're hoping to resume this fundraiser soon.
Fall Mums Fundraiser
In the fall, WIN has their annual mum fundraiser. We partner with Stacy's Nursery in Willmar to sell big, beautiful mums to raise money for our Ridgewater Collage scholarship and to fund activities for our mentoring program. This has been a very successful fundraiser for us to raise money to help young girls and women in our community. We also enjoy working with Stacy's Nursery, a wonderful woman owned business in our area.
