Wow!  We had over 55 women come out tonight in support of our community’s nonprofit organizations!  We currently have 83 women that have joined for 2015!  We’re excited because that means 4 non-profits will each receive at least $8,300.00.  We’d love to become 100+ Women Who Care, so that we can give even more!  Generosity and philanthropy work well together hand in hand!  Thank you everyone for making this a great experience!

Here are the three that were drawn out……………

1.  PUTNAM COUNTY COUNCIL ON THE AGING AND AGED, INC.   (Christina Bittles was the speaker)

Ok ladies!  I’m remembering last year at this time, how we had to postpone the event due to weather!  NOT TONIGHT THOUGH…………….the sun is shining………….my heart is full!

I’m ready to see you all come together to laugh, meet new faces and give back a portion to a worthy non-profit!  I hope you have in mind who you’ll be nominating!  It’s exciting to get together again!   CAN WE HIT 100 AGAIN, MAYBE EVEN 100+!!!!!!!!!!! If we have 100 Women, that’s $10,000 each time we meet this year going to great causes in our own community!  Last year we gave back over $55,000 (incl. the endowment) and I would love to see that happen again in 2015!  Invite a friend!  The number doesn’t stop at 100!
