How we got here.
In the fall of 2019, a group of local women gathered together with the intention of making a difference in our communities. A wonderful evening was planned, where 100 amazing Elk Valley women would gather to hear about local groups in need of funding. Through a nomination and voting process, two groups would be selected to share the total funds raised! And then the COVID-19 global pandemic brought everything to a halt. We don’t know when we might gather in-person, but we do know there are many grassroots organizations that need help so that they can continue to support the people in our communities. SO, we agree to carry-on and host our first Giving Event virtually – hosted on Zoom.
In December 2020, the inaugural 100 Women Who Care Fernie virtual Giving Event sold out with 105 members joining and collectively donating $10,500! They came together virtually, nominated, voted and awarded three great organizations $3500 each.
100WWCFernie members remain steadfast in their commitment to make an impact in the Elk Valley by supporting two Giving Events a year.
The 100WWCFernie concept is simple, effective and amazingly impactful!
