Words, Wit & Wisdom

Thursday, September 23 at the Wychemere Beach Club

A Day of Words, Wit and Wisdom (W3) has been WE CAN’s signature event and primary fundraiser for the past 15 years. We all look forward to this day because of the inspiration, humor, generosity, and emotion that is shared by all who attend. Be sure to check back here for updated event information.

We are grateful to the 2020 sponsors and attendees who generously supported WE CAN last year. Please take a moment to watch this video from 2020 featuring Anne LeClaire, W3 Program Chair. 


Please note: the dates in the video have expired, but we think you will enjoy Anne’s fond memories all the same.

WE CAN is open and providing legal, employment, business support, and financial counseling services, as well as direct referrals to basic need resources. In March of 2020, with the arrival of COVID-19, our staff and volunteers quickly pivoted to enable these vital services to be provided remotely, without interruption.

We thank all of our volunteers, whose diligence and flexibility during a challenging time enabled us to continue to support women and families experiencing challenging transitions in their lives.

We are all in this together. We thank you for your support of WE CAN and the community of women we serve, and we look forward to seeing you on September 23, 2021. Thank you.

Please take a moment to acknowledge all of our sponsors. The great success of this fundraising event depends on their generosity.
