NORTH DUNDAS — Preparations for the third annual 100 Women Who Care North Dundas are well underway. 

North Dundas has an overwhelming number of caring ladies, 156 so far, to be exact.

What started out as a 100 women coming together to raise $10,000 for local charities has easily doubled every year since it’s debut in 2017.

“We had 135 women signed up in just over 24 hours,” boasted 100 Women Who Care North Dundas Chair, Diane Crummy. 

Whether you have participated every year or are contemplating giving it a try this year for the first time, the time to sign up is now. There are only 44 spaces remaining, and they are filling up fast!

This year’s affair will once again be hosted at the Joel Steele Community Centre in Winchester, Thursday, May 7, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. giving you plenty of time to enjoy the refreshments, company, and preview the charities involved. 

The annual event will run as per usual. 

“Mostly everything is the same,” explained Crummy. “The caterers have not yet been confirmed.”

Participants show up with a blank cheque and register at the tables in the main lobby. Then head upstairs for a social hour where they can meet with each individual charity. Promptly at 7:30 the presentations will begin. One-by-one each charity will have the chance to pitch their project ideas in hopes of procuring your vote. 

Once the speeches wrap-up the 200 women each cast their vote.

After the votes are counted the top two or three non-profit organizations are awarded. 

Registration applications for local charities have commenced and must be submitted by the April 21 deadline to be considered.

To sign up to be part of the event, to register your charity or for more information on the event please visit the website.
