The charity 100 Women Who Care West Shore is set to meet once again on Sept, 15, this time at a brand-new location.
September’s meeting will be taking place at the Royal Colwood Golf Club, with registration and a meet and greet over refreshments starting at 6 p.m., and the meeting itself running from 7 to 8 p.m.
At its quarterly meetings, the organization gathers more than 100 women from the community who are passionate about contributing to local community causes, and who are looking to take collective action. Each meeting, the group hears three presentations from organizations before voting on which will receive the donations collected that night.
Each woman writes a cheque to the successful group, and donations can quickly reach beyond $10,000.
In June for example, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Victoria were chosen, and $4,000 in donations was raised in an hour.
