Women Business Owners Alliance hold “fun-raiser” in Holyoke


The Women Business Owners Alliance held their 25th annual Women’s Night of Comedy at the Log Cabin in Holyoke Thursday evening.

It’s billed as a “fun-raiser.”

More than 200 women came together for dinner, raffles, and entertainment.

The annual event typically raises up to $10,000 and one of this year’s recipient charities was Girls Inc. of Holyoke.

“We align so much with their mission of helping girls be strong smart and bold, because they are our future,” said Gretchen Duhaime, president of the alliance. “We were strong smart and bold girls ourselves, and we still have to be that every single day to be our own CEOs in our businesses.”

The Cheryl Reed Loan Memorial Fund, which provides financial support for women in business, was also one of Thursday night’s recipient charities.
