My favorite non-profit
As a former executive director of the Women's Resource Center, I may be biased but I think it's one of the strongest, most well-run nonprofits in the region. Dedicated staff, board and volunteers have increased organizational capacity -- plus their fundraisers are FUN to attend. Don't miss Men Who Grill, the premier fundraiser in early June, and Girls Night Out, in late August.

Men Who Grill
Always a "fun" day. Fun to volunteer and fun to try all the wonderful grilled food. A worthwhile event both in terms of supporting a caring non-profit organization and getting your money's worth in entertainment and barbecued edibles. Barbara Shore

Men who grill is the BEST food event in Durango. It has grown over the years to become an absolute FEAST that should not be missed unless you don't like yummy food. The atmosphere is festive and the costumes can be hysterical. But the FOOD is the BEST!!!!

An Amazing Night!
Thanks, all at the WRC for an AMAZING night out with all the amazing women of Durango. It was fantastic to be in a room of 350!!! Durango women, celebrating womens' accomplishments! Can't wait until next year! Any women out there who haven't joined the WRC, time to get on board!

Great resource for women interested in business
I have supported and promoted the WRC for several years, but just recently actually took advantage of their services. I met with Joe Keck from the Small Business Development Center to discuss financial and strategic options for a business I was starting. Joe was very available and extremely helpful in helping make a few strategic decisions about my business direction. I wish I hadn't waited so long to check out the resources at WRC!

A friend for us lady folk
I couldn't believe how many strong, beautiful and smart ladies were at the Girls Night Out event put on by the Women's Resource Center. I have yet to tap into the resources provided by the center, but I know now that I can at any time. And believe me, as a woman who runs her own gallery and has no idea how to do the official business thing, I feel lucky to have a safety net and helper like the WRC. It makes me a little braver and bolder than I would be without them.
