100 Women Who Care group calling for Mid-Isle members

The group will meet for one hour, four times a year, to choose a charity they wish to donate to.

A group of women is inviting others to join them in forming a 100 Women Who Care Mid-Island group.

The group will meet for one hour, four times a year, to choose a charity they wish to donate to. Each of the participants will contribute $100, meaning the charity that is chosen – through a nominating and voting process – will receive $10,000.

Because the group meets four time a year, the total amount of funds raised will add up to $40,000. “This is such a great chance to help out so many struggling charities, in such an easy, direct manner,” a release issued by the group says.

There will be an informational meeting at the Fox and Hounds pub in Ladysmith, Wednesday, April 13 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The first inaugural meeting, and your only chance to receive “founding member” status will be at The Eagles Hall, Wednesday, June 8.  The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. with cash bar available.
