We had a terrific time at Fleming’s Steak House last Friday night as we celebrated and raised funds for Smart Women’s Empowerment with a delicious wine tasting event hosted by Fleming’s Steak House, Livonia!  Not only did we have fun raising funds for our Women in Transition Scholarship Fund, but we recognized one of our donors, Deborah Miesel of Seed Foundation,with our Generous Spirit award for all the work she has done over the years helping individuals empower their lives with her personal time and effort as well as financial donations.   Thank you Debbie and everyone who helped to make this event a success!

There were so many new friendships and connections made during the two hour wine tasting event.  At one point, Peter Travis, Operating Partner of Fleming’s, auctioned off a fabulous bottle of 47 Diamonds wine (priceless) along with two hand carved wine glasses.  This caused a huge bidding war which was finally won by no one else than my former nanny and now successful business woman, Greta Myers!  What a hoot!

I created the Smart Women’s Empowerment Foundation to help women who are temporarily down on their luck due to an unexpected death, divorce, domestic violence, job loss, disability or other transition.  These types of transitions affect women from all walks of life and economic levels.  Our goal is to offer the short term support and funding to help them get back on their feet with confidence and financial independence.
