Capital City Dragon Boat Race – Yes, it is for you!

The Women’s Center of Greater Lansing took over the hosting of the Capital City Dragon Boat race (CCDBR) in 2014. Dragon boating in the U.S. was started around raising money for charities that support breast cancer survivors. A large portion of any proceeds that we raise from the CCDBR go to our Cancer C.A.R.E.S. program. Cancer CARES help support anyone who is living with cancer and their family access support services to help them deal with cancer. We also have a wig and prosthetic bank, a clothing closet, employment services and opportunities for men and children to meet with one another and talk about what it’s like to have a parent or partner with cancer.

A dragon boat hold 20 people: 18 paddlers, a drummer and a flag catcher. ANYONE can participate in dragon boating. It was started with breast cancer survivors! If you want to know more about the CCDBR please go to the website:

HE LAUGHS III – JULY 11 – MSU UNION – Dinner, Comedy, Dancing


An extremely gracious anonymous donor has financed a catered evening at the MSU Union Ballroom. For a relatively small donation to the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing, you’ll receive a grand night of dinner, comedy and music.


The He Laughs III comedy show will have you laughing, tapping your toes and itching to get out of your seat to shake what your mama gave you.
Because of this wonderful donation, expenses are low which means that a majority percentage of your donation will go directly to the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing.


Metro Melik of Lansing Made will be hosting the He Laughs III event on Saturday July 11th, 2015 at the MSU Union Ballroom. Doors open at 5:30 PM. The night begins with a cash bar, then dinner at 6:30 PM. Four fun guys will perform comedy beginning at 8:00 PM. And the dance floor will be open from 9:30 – 11:30 PM.


We encourage you to take advantage of this special night of giving to benefit the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing. They need your help. And we are sure you’ll enjoy good food, a good laugh and an excuse not to go to the gym because you left your workout on the dance floor. See you Saturday July 11th at the MSU Union Ballroom for He Laughs III benefiting the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing.
