Committee Chair, Diane Crummy, says this year’s edition will run very similar to last year’s. “The only difference will be when the ballots are being counted we will be having the three winning charities back to thank and show their completed projects.”

As per last year each charity will have up to three minutes to pitch their initiative to the 200 women. Once each organization has finished, the voting will begin. During the tallying of the votes, last year’s three winning charities will be welcomed back to share their experiences and the results of their completed projects.

Crummy also disclosed that the men’s chapter is set for September 26.

Best of luck to everyone!
