About 100 Women Who Care
100 Women Who Care is a movement of people gathering together to make a difference. There are currently more than 650 chapters throughout the world. You can learn more about this network of organizations here.
In October 2019, some Elk Valley women said – hey, we could do this here. And so began the journey. A steering committee of volunteers gathered together and started planning an event. We had big ambitious goals to bring women together in a great setting, enjoy great food, and give to great local causes as a group. Our plans were disrupted by the pandemic. We thought we would delay. The pandemic didn’t go away. So, we did what so many others have done in this interesting time. We opted to go virtual and on December 4 will hold our first 100 Women Who Care Fernie event.
Who are these volunteers? The steering committee consists of:
- Anita Palmer
- Cindy Pearson
- Donna Marie Young
- Marilyn Brock
- Patty Vadnais
- Sharon Strom
- Shantelle Weir
- Sophie Howden
- Zabrina Mohr
Is this a board? No, this is not a board and 100 Women Who Care is not a society. The steering group considered registering as a society and chose not to because of the associated cost and resources necessary to become a society. Our focus lies instead with inviting friends to gather together, hear from each other about great local causes, and make a donation collectively.
All donations go to the groups voted on by the attendees.
