May 21, 2019 Luncheon Speaker – Beer City Dog Biscuits

May 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Creators, Leslie Hooker and Suzanne Wilcox, each have a son with a disability. Suzanne for 18 years has owned an educational consulting business that advocates for families and children with disabilities. Suzanne has started other nonprofits relating to children with disabilities in Ohio. Suzanne was on the International Dyslexia Association in Columbus, OH for five years. Leslie has been an advocate for her son and the disabled community in Grand Rapids, MI for over 25 years. Leslie has been involved with Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired for 20 years. She also did fundraising and planning for a special needs playground in the Grand Rapids Public Schools. She has been involved in many fundraising campaigns and committees at East Grand Rapids Public Schools and Central Reformed church. This commitment to education and the disabled led them to create this company to provide training and employment opportunities for the disabled community. Their passion and love for their boys, dogs and beer were a natural fit.
