Standale Interiors Network Night for women along with WOTV4Women has raised awareness in our community. This annual event brings about 200 women together for an evening of fun but also is a great venue for learning new things, meeting new people, and helping themselves. We have addressed entrepreneurialism partnering with GROW (Grand Rapids Opportunities for Women). There were women’s health awareness, fashion and the proper attire that sponsored a clothing drive for Women’s Resource Center, and how volunteerism helps on a resume when you’ve been out of the workforce for a while or looking for a career change where we raised money for Make-a-Wish Michigan. We’ve had these great events with the help of many great partners all under the guise of having a great time, with great people, food, drink and shopping for fun stuff with one the local vendors (typically artisan) that come in and set up shop in our store.
We also have other events and support many local organizations by helping with fundraising events or just opening our store for them if a larger venue is needed for their event.
