Women’s Wine Dinner at St. John Fisher University
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 (5:30 PM - 9:00 PM) (EDT)
The Women in Family Business Program at the School of Business at St. John Fisher University will hold its kick-off event, the Women’s Wine Dinner, will bring together women who have a role in their family firms. The Women in Family Business program is a part of the School's Family Business Initiative.
Meaghan Frank, vice president and fourth generation of the Dr. Frank Winery on Keuka Lake, will be the guest of honor at the dinner. Frank uses her platform in the family business to honor the generations of women that precede her via “The Helm” wine series. Dr. Frank’s “The Helm” will be paired with a three-course dinner for the occasion.
A key influence of Frank’s upbringing is her Ukrainian roots. Each family member has helped build the winery into the success it is today. A portion of proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the World Central Kitchen, which has served millions of meals to Ukrainians this year.
“There is an opportunity to create a program that will lend to networking, educational content, mentorship, and more. All of which will aid in the growth of our female family business leaders,” said Teagan White ’19, director of onboarding and community engagement at JN White, and member of the Women in Family Business committee. “Our inaugural dinner will be a multi-sensory event in that we’ll hear Meaghan tell stories of her family members, including photos, taste the individual names, and hear about how each wine was crafted. Our hope is this will lend to thinking about other women in family-owned businesses and how they played, or still play, a key role in the success of the company.”
Tickets to the event are $90 per person (age 21 and older, please). Register online by Wednesday, Aug. 24.
The dinner will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14
