Dear 100 + Women Who Care Dufferin,
We would like to thank all those who attended our first in-person event since before COVID at Adamo Estates Winery at the end of June. It was a wonderful, fun evening out that had ladies coming early to meet
up and enjoy the venue. While our numbers have diminished, our commitment to our community continues as strong as ever and we look forward to building the numbers back to greater than our pre-pandemic membership.
We had 3 very convincing pitches from Big Brothers, Big Sisters Dufferin District, Alzheimer’s Dufferin and Choices Youth Shelter. Choices Youth Shelter was voted the winner and has received more than $2700.00 to
date from our membership.
As you may know, we have changed the commitment and amount since this chapter’s inception to make this organization more accessible to more people, especially in light of the financial hardships posed to many
sectors during and after the pandemic. There is no longer the requirement of a total of $100.00 nor the commitment to come to all 4 meetings. Instead, we are asking for a minimum of $25.00 with no limit so if it
is a charity close to your heart and you are able, please give as much as you would like to! Tax receipts will be issued for all donations over $25.00.
Two information tables are now also being provided at each event. If you are a group located in Dufferin that isn’t a registered charity and that is a not-for-profit you can contact us to get the organization known to the
attendees of the next event. Space will be allotted on a first-come, first serve basis.
Please don’t forget to nominate your favourite local charity (or ask them to self-nominate).
Nominations are due by Tuesday, September 6th. Our next event is Monday, September 26th at 7 pm sharp at Adamo Estates Winery. Mix and mingle from 6-7 pm. Dinner is available at the Hockley Resort on Mondays- not at the winery, should you want to meet up before or after the event. Please try to bring a few friends, colleagues or family with you. It is a terrific night out for a terrific cause.
We wish you a wonderful and safe rest of the summer and can’t wait to see your lovely faces, in person at Adamo Estates Winery on Monday, September 26th. The meeting starts promptly at 7 pm (please arrive at least by 6:45 Pm).
