WERC’s First Impressions Second Chances Networking Event

The Capital District Women’s Employment and Resource Center (WERC) is excited to announce WERC’s 15th Annual First Impressions Second Chances Networking Event. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm on the beautiful grounds of the historic Pruyn House at 207 Old Niskayuna Road in Latham NY.

This will be an exceptional evening of shopping, food, drinks, and networking to benefit the women of WERC. It is a great opportunity to meet WERC Graduates who are seeking employment and to connect with prominent business owners and professionals in the Capital Region who attend to support WERC.

The ticket price of $60 includes a fabulous networking opportunity, fantastic buffet and vendors selling handbags, jewelry, clothing, accessories, personal care products and more. Tickets are currently on sale on WERC’s website: All are welcome to attend. Tickets for an incredible prize giveaway are also on sale to raise additional funds for WERC.

Donations are encouraged and appreciated. These could include clothing, accessories, and gift cards that will be utilized by the women in WERC’s Training Programs. Collected clothing and accessories will be donated to Great Finds to distribute to the women of WERC. Great Finds Thrift Boutique is owned and operated by Equinox, a local, nonprofit agency, offering vouchers for free clothing to nonprofit organizations that provide support to women in need.

We thank our generous sponsors, including Miranda Real Estate Group, Inc., Capital Bank, and Integrated Management & Sales Consulting. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.  For more details and to register, visit: WERC’s 2023 First Impressions Second Chances
