May 23, 2018 GTW Luncheon

Event Date: 05/23/2018

Event Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Location: Hagerty Center


Join us Wednesday, May 23rd for our 2018 GTWoman in Business Luncheon!

Speaker: Gina Ferwerda!

Food Blogger: Gina Ferwerda from Nom News will talk “Boating, Boarding & Burgers!”  As seen on GMA, WZZM, FOX17, WTSP and WISH-TV.

Meet Gina Ferwerda—she is a TV personality, travel/food blogger, business entrepreneur, and author of her debut cookbook, Meals from the Mitten: Celebrating the Seasons in Michigan. 

Gina is a regular on-air personality on WZZM TV13 and has been featured by the TODAY show food club, the Rachael Ray Show, ABC’s The Chew, and she was on Good Morning America’s competition for best chocolate cake… and her Pretzel Crusted Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting won 1st place!

The 208-page coffee table-style book is filled with 80+ signature recipes that celebrate all of the fresh and local ingredients that are grown in our home state of Michigan.

Gina will share her funny story on how she became a food blogger (after becoming an empty nester) and how her burgers are now her claim to fame, so to speak. She’ll share her tips and tricks on making the perfect burger and burger bar, just in time for your summer cookout.

Join us for a lunch that will inspire you to fire up your grill and pursue your passion, at any age. We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, May 23, for lunch with Gina.   Visit to learn more about Gina.
