Big Sky Ranch is a focal point for animal lovers in this community, and that is why their name keeps coming up in the nominations from 100 Women Who Care North Grenville. On November 16, Big Sky was voted the big winner of the night’s funds.
Nominations for charities were received in advance of the meeting this quarter, and representatives from each of Big Sky Ranch, the Kemptville District Hospital, and Kemptville and District Home Support were invited to speak at the gathering. Registered members and teams were invited to place a vote for their charity of choice, with each vote counting towards $100 of the final tally.
eQuinelle provided their Fireside Grill venue, and Catered Affairs served some delicious food at the event. Door prizes were generously donated by Shulamit Ber Levtov, Karen Quigley of Saltastic and Kelly Chapman of Face Values Day Spa.
The local founder of 100 Women Who Care, Ashley Vincent, says the first year of the organization has been a learning curve for all, as they discover the most efficient and effective ways in which to run their operations. The group has raised over $11,000 this year in four one-hour meetings. The forecast for 2018 is for continued growth, as more women learn about the opportunity to do something awesome right where they live.
The next meeting of 100 Women Who Care NG is scheduled for February 8, 2018. If you would like to learn more about this important organization and what it is doing for local charities headquartered in your community, visit them on Facebook or at www.100womenwhocareng.com.
