How we got here.
In January and February of 2020, a group of caring women gathered together with the intention of making a difference. We were planning a wonderful evening to gather with 100 amazing Elk Valley women to hear about local groups in need of funding. Through a nomination and voting process, two or three groups were to be selected to receive the funds – up to $4000 each! And then it was March and a pandemic brought everything to a halt. It is unknown when we can again gather in large groups. As our organizing group looks around, we see that there are many great organizations in need of funds to fulfill their amazing missions. With that in mind, we are moving forward with our first fundraising event in a way fitting of the times – a Zoom meeting.
We invite you to participate in the first 100 Women Who Care Fernie event on December 4, 2020. It will be different than we had hoped, but that is how this year has gone. We will adapt, and we will be part of a better tomorrow with your help.
