    Wine, Women, and Wealth Okmulgee - August
    Aug
    2
    7:00 PM19:00

    Wine, Women, and Wealth Okmulgee - August

    Why do we call ourselves Wine, Women & Wealth? Our name comes from the visionary woman who first created our group. After moving to a new city, she missed her circle of female friends. Ready to meet great women, she combined two of her passions financial education and wine and then invited several women to an event. The women who came loved it and they invited more friends. The name stuck and now Wine, Women & Wealth groups meet in numerous states across the country. Although we have wine in our name, you don’t have to drink wine or even like wine, you just need to enjoy friends and fun! 

    Who is invited? Who are our members? Women of all ages, races, and walks of life. Some of us have careers. Some of us spend our days raising children. Some of us have retired. We are all committed to having a financially secure life while also having great fun and fabulous friendships. 
    *No financial agents please as this event is sponsored and hosted by Five Rings Financial.

    What does it cost? There is no cost to join the Wine, Women & Wealth community or to attend the monthly gatherings. We are committed to bringing quality, fun, connection, and financial education to our communities. Each month 3-4 of the gals volunteer to be a sponsor to help with the cost of the location, wine and snacks, in return they get to showcase their business or promote their passion. If you'd like to help in this way, please let us know.

    Our connections: We are joined together by our common desire for financial confidence, opportunity to meet other great women, the desire to support each other and giving back to our communities. Some of us sip wine at our events, some don’t. There are no rules. If you desire to join us and enhance your financial future, we welcome you to our community. Relationships are as important as our finances and we love having fun.

    Our Gatherings: Every month, throughout the country, Wine, Women & Wealth gatherings bring together like-minded women to have fun, relax and enjoy the company of each other while also improving our financial health, wisdom & opportunities. Wine Women & Wealth is a trademarked event - make sure you see our logo so you're not supporting a copycat group!
