2018 WRISE & Wine Annual Tasting & Fundraiser a Big Success!
SoCore Energy is proud to have again sponsored the Chicago Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy (WRISE, formerly WoWE) Annual WRISE & Wine tasting and fundraising event. The event featured four sustainably-produced wines made by female winemakers and vineyard owners along with small bites and spectacular views. Held at DIRTT Environmental Solutions, attendees networked for a good cause amongst examples of DIRTT’s high-performance, creative prefab interiors, showcasing sustainable design and a wine wall! SoCore contributed its signature sunglasses to the great swag table.
WRISE Chicago was thrilled by the amazing turnout of women and men in support of the organization, a driving force in changing our energy future. Not only did the chapter raise over $50K at this event, it also celebrated the many empowering women in the organization who develop, supply, finance, recruit, service, construct, own, operate and so much more across a multitude of renewable energy and sustainable industries. All proceeds from the event will benefit the programs of WRISE, including funding scholarships for female university students and recent graduates to attend the AWEA Windpower and Solar Power International trade shows. Congratulations to WRISE on another successful event!
