Thank you!

We’re so grateful to all who joined us for this year’s virtual Wine, Women & Chocolate.

Over 230 guests joined us virtually for a special evening of wine and chocolate. Sommelier George Walker led us through a delicious tasting that featured beer and wine from local businesses. We also enjoyed an online auction with amazing prizes.

Along the way, we learned about women who are actively THRIVING and working towards fulfilling career development goals through the Women’s Resource Center. Thank you to all who supported and attended this event!

Sommelier George Walker

Eight years ago George Washington Carver Walker III didn’t know the difference between a cabernet sauvignon and a sauvignon blanc. He first encountered wine while he was a student at the Culinary Institute of Michigan.

George sharpened his skills and built a diverse network of wine loving friends across the globe through his travels. Now, George is determined to change the culture and perspective of wine through his company Graped Out and “take the ‘boujee’ out of wine,” one bottle at a time.
