When Women’s Fund of Door County board members Nikki Hedeen and Megan Lundahl founded Tales of Our Lives story slam back in 2013, they were hoping to create an event for the WFDC that would appeal to a younger demographic. They accomplished their goal and as a result had two years of sell-out performances.
That led this dynamic duo to add a second evening featuring the same performances and as the dates for this year’s show sneak up on us (March 3 & 4) sales are brisk!
Listen in as co-founder Megan Lundahl gives a bit of history of this fabulous event showcasing the lives of women and one young man from Door County in spoken word.

Women’s Fund’s Story Slam is Back – Now Two Nights!
Please join the Women’s Fund of Door County on Thursday, March 3rd or Friday, March 4th for their spectacular annual event, Tales of Our Lives – A Story Slam: Empowerment Through Performance. A story slam is more than just storytelling, it’s a rare glimpse into the storytellers’ lives and how they have been transformed into the people they have become. These engaging stories range from funny to sad, from heartwarming to heart wrenching, each offering a unique and authentic gift from the storyteller as they share a piece of themselves with their audience.
This year’s storytellers will be Laurel Brooks, Cassie Potter Hitzman, Ruby James, Caitlin Oleson, Gay Pustaver, Sally Slattery, Isaiah Spetz and Virge Temme, with musical interludes once again by Dorothy Scott and Jess Holland. Tales of Our Lives is on Thursday, March 3rd and Friday, March 4th at the Door County Fire Company in downtown Sturgeon Bay. Social hour starts at 6:00 p.m. and the stories will begin at 7:00 p.m. Complimentary local baked goods and Door County Coffee will be served. A cash bar will be available, including drink specials also benefitting the fund. Both men and women are encouraged to attend. Content is for mature audiences, young adults under parental guidance welcome!
