100 Women Who Care North Grenville is excited to be launching into their third year. Since its inception in 2017, this group of local women has raised over $30,000 for local charities in North Grenville. The group continues to raise thousands of dollars each quarter, in a simple hour-long meeting and hopes to double their contributions in 2019.
Each individual member or group has committed to put forward $100 per quarter. At each meeting, three nominated charities present to the group, and at the end of the hour-long meeting, one is voted as the winning recipient.
The next meeting of 100 Women Who Care NG is scheduled for February 7, at eQuinelle. Please come as a guest to see what it’s all about. The warmth of the membership is contagious and you will want to join in the amazing movement happening in North Grenville.
Check out the 100 Women Who Care NG event page on Facebook and tell them you’re planning to attend the Q1 meeting on February 7, at the eQuinelle Golf and Resident Clubhouse.
Registration for new members begins at 5:30pm, in the large salon overlooking the scenic golf course. Order a cocktail and enjoy a wonderful hot meal sponsored by Natalie Castellas of Catered Affairs (by donation) and join in the conversation about the charities you would like to help out this quarter.
100 Women Who Care NG has partnered with the Ottawa Community Foundation to streamline their donation process. Members can log on to the Foundation’s central website and enter “100 Women Who Care North Grenville” as the fund to receive their donation. This system automatically generates a tax receipt, making the whole operation that much easier.
As of the last meeting, the 100 Women Who Care North Grenville was 110 ladies strong. The local chapter of this world-wide organization raised just over $12,000 for charity in its first year and over $18,000 in year 2. The 100 Women Who Care North Grenville hopes to double their contributions in 2019. There is also a local 100 Men Who Care and 100 Kids Who Care.
