Join Work Options for Women in celebrating our 14th annual fundraiser, WomenCook! This year, we will be featuring a brand new auction platform sponsored by GESTURE, we'll be hosting the event at a new venue - the EXDO Event Center in RiNo, and we'll be unveiling our brand new delivery model for our program, the Mobile Culinary Classroom! This new, fully equipped professional kitchen was made possible by a generous grant from Impact100 Metro Denver and will allow us to bring culinary skills training directly to Denver's most vulnerable residents living in locations including halfway houses.  We can't wait to share this momentous accomplishment with all of you.
