Western Update September 2019

The Western region held their annual dinner on Wednesday, May 22nd. In addition to board elections, Lindsay Canan received the 2019 Outstanding Member Award.

The Women Lawyers v. Judges Charity Softball game was held on June 15th. The Judges won 2-1 in a defensive battle. While sponsorships were down slightly from their all-time high in 2016, increased ticket sales and contributions made this the highest revenue year ever, with over $20,000 going to the YWCA. The YWCA’s services are made possible by the generosity of our community, and the history behind this partnership is truly exceptional. This event has raised over $300,000 for the Y over the past 36 years of doing this.

The Western board met in August for their annual social/planning meeting.

On October 3rd we will host our Back to School happy hour at Vander Mill in Grand Rapids. RSVP to wlam.western.region@gmail.com.
