100 Women Who Care Haliburton County will have its second meeting at Minden’s Dominion Hotel on Wednesday March 29.
It will be the second meeting of the group which meets every four months each of those meetings a quick injection of cash for a local charity.
“The idea is that it’s for busy women” founder Joan Featherstone told the Times before the first meeting in November. Women attend a short meeting – an hour and half – and suggest a charitable organization to be the recipient of the funds. Three finalists are chosen with the nominators of those finalists doing a brief talk on their organization of choice. There is a vote and the winning organization receives the funds the evening has raised.
Each woman is asked to bring a $100 donation with her or pair up with a partner each making a $50 contribution.
“We raised $3200 in one hour” Featherstone says of the November meeting. That money ended up going to Food for Kids.
The March meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 29 at the Dominion Hotel.
