Make A Difference In The Life Of A Child While Enjoying Metro Detroit’s Hottest Happy Hour!

One in five Michigan children struggle with hunger and 48 percent (more than 300,000) of school-aged children in Michigan are eligible for free or reduced-fee school lunch.
On Thursday, March 23, 2017, over 350 of Michigan’s most powerful and influential women will come together at the MGM Grand Detroit for the 4th annual Women’s Power Happy Hour benefitting Gleaners Community Food Bank.
Dee Dee McKinney Odom of MGM Grand Detroit returns as a WPHH co-chair and welcomes Judith Greenstone Miller of Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss and Joan Hennessey of Hennessey Engineers as new co-chairs for 2017.
Created as a sister event for Gleaners’ Women’s Power Breakfast (April 27th @ Cobo), the WPHH has swelled to 375 guests since 150 people attended the inaugural event in 2014. The powerful pair of events serve as bookends to Gleaners’ Million Meal Match, a month-long campaign aimed at raising one million meals for hungry children in southeastern Michigan.

Normally, $1 provides three meals, but throughout the Million Meal Match, $1 provides SIX nutritious meals that help children in your community grow and thrive. Last year, the pair of “Women’s Power” events raised over $385,000 and allowed Gleaners to provide over 1.1 million meals!

Along with unparalleled networking opportunities with hundreds of southeast Michigan’s most connected female leaders, WPHH guests will enjoy an evening of spectacular spirits, tantalizing hors d’oeuvres and superlative socializing. A sensational silent auction will offer high-bidders the chance to take home incredible items like a custom, handmade leather purse from Beau Satchel, priceless experiences like lunch with Quicken Loans CIO Linglong He and an array of other alluring offerings.

The 4th annual Women’s Power Happy Hour is the place to see and be seen! It’s always five o’clock somewhere but Gleaners is fighting hunger every day, around-the-clock.
