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! 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.
In December 2020, the first 100 Women Who Care Fernie event was held on zoom and three great organizations received $3500 each.
The second giving event was held on May 7, 2021 and two groups received $3,650.
