Merill St. in Birmingham.  Happy to greet guests and support the Empowerment Plan were hosts (left to right) Allison Woll Parr and Jessica Woll.  The Empowerment Plan aims to help build a better life for those that have become trapped in the cycle of homelessness. It provides homeless women jobs while in the shelter so that they can earn money, find a place to live, and gain back their independence for themselves and for their families.

Woll & Woll PC hosted an event on Thursday, Oct. 2, to celebrate its new office space in Birmingham and to benefit The Empowerment Plan, a Detroit-based non-profit organization that helps build a better life for those trapped in the cycle of homelessness. More than 300 business professionals, community leaders, and elected officials attended the event which raised upwards of $30,000 to help those trapped in the cycle of homelessness.
The affair was hosted by Jessica Woll, managing partner of Woll & Woll PC, a divorce and family law firm with a niche expertise in complex family law issues.

Co-hosts included Allison Woll Parr, Romy Gingras Kochan, Natalie Gingras Hazen, Sharon Carlile, Michael Fishman, Kathy Kalabat, Jill Shumacher, Nazli Sater, and Barbara Smith.

The Empowerment Plan centers on the construction of a coat that transforms into a sleeping bag and/or a bag, and was conceived and designed by TEP founder and CEO Veronika Scott.                       

In addition to fine food and drinks, the event featured art in action from acclaimed Detroit graffiti artist Antonio “Shades” Agee who auctioned off a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork to benefit TEP. Other artwork was available from Aimee Began of ItalModa, a Royal Oak-based interior design firm that helped guide the vision and execution of the new Woll & Woll PC office space, and pieces from Detroit photographer Jessica McCarthy. Live entertainment was provided indoors by DJ and acoustic guitarist John Arnold and percussionist Craig Huckabee with musician Bobby McManus playing guitar and singing on the patio.
