Charity of Choice November 2017
Oh what a night! Our 4th and final meeting of 100 Women Who Care Ajax | Pickering | Whitby for 2017 was exciting!
A big 100 Women thank you to our venue sponsor Mackenzine Bar & Restuarant, especially for the surprise entertainment!
To start off the night we heard from Dianne Mackenzie from Epilepsy Durham our Charity of Choice for August about how our donation impacted their programs, specifically the “Why We Care Program”. View presentation.
We heard from three very deserving charities:
· Simcoe Hall Settlement House –nominated by Lisa – view presentation
· A new charity! Humane Society of Durham Region nominated by Vera – view presentation
· Distress Centre Durham – nominated by Victoria – view presentation
As always the presentations were insightful and moving, hitting home how great the need is in our community.
While the votes were being tabulated we were serenaded by Neil Diamond aka Andrew Night. Such an energizing and uplifting performance, thank you Andrew! A first for our ladies!
All are worthwhile charities, and we would love to give the money to all. However, the members voted, and the WINNING charity is Distress Centre Durham!
