100 women raise $12,000 for a Deserving Local Charity


An extraordinary event took place last night at the Collingwood Legion  when 100+ local women came together for one hour to donate more than $12,000 to a local charity.  The women were all members of the newly formed group, 100+ Women Who Care South Georgian Triangle. This was their inaugural  meeting.  

Two months ago, 100+ Women Who Care South Georgian Triangle had 5 members. Today it has 125 members all intent on making a difference. The group's premise is simple yet powerful. Collectively they choose a local charity to support and each woman makes a $100 donation to that charity - while the charity, in turn, receives a significant and impactful donation of $12,500.

Three charities were selected from the nominations provided my members; Events for Life, Hospice Georgian Triangle and Home Horizon.   The nominating members presented on behalf of their nominated charity.  After a passionate discussion in which all three charities benefited by increasing awareness of their good work, the membership selected Home Horizon’s Barbara Weider House to receive their donation.  

A representative from the charity will attend the next meeting of 100+ Women to let the group know the difference they made in helping them better serve their community.

100+ Women Who Care would like to thank the Collingwood Legion for donating the space to hold their meetings. The group meets four times a year, with the next meeting on November 22nd at 7:00pm.  To learn more about this exciting initiative, or to become a member, go to their website
