Jaffe’s Women’s Caucus Group hosts Charitable Marketplace Event

Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, P.C.’s Women’s Caucus Group, established to help women at the firm manage work-life balance, participate in community outreach and gain valuable self-marketing and business skills, recently hosted a Charitable Marketplace Event to benefit local causes.

Attendees had the opportunity to network, hear inspirational stories from three incredible vendors who contribute sale proceeds to charitable causes and get a head start on holiday shopping. The vendors in attendance were:

• Rebel Nell, a Detroit-based social enterprise that empowers women, creating graffiti jewelry from chipped pain and offering classes about financial success to women in need; 

• WAR Chest Boutique, the retail arm of the Michigan based non-profit organization, Women at Risk, International (WAR, Int’l), which offers unique gifts that are hand-crafted by or sold in support of at-risk women and men in their partnering programs in over 40 countries; and

• Wingme Cosmetics, a local vegan and cruelty-free makeup brand that prides itself on giving back to select charities that empower women and children.
