Simple, meaningful and powerful are three words describing a new organization to the area, The Power of 100 Warren County. The object of the organization is to gather 100 women, meet four times a year to choose a charity to honor.
The idea is similar to others across the nation, with members nominating charitable organizations in the area for consideration each quarter. Either individually or as a team, $100 is donated to the charity receiving the most votes from the members.
Each event has the potential to generate $10,000 for a local cause. The fundraising efforts allows the group to have an impact in the community where they work, live, play and raise their families. By harnessing the power of women coming together, they have a much greater impact than doing it alone.
The local chapter is founded by a steering committee consisting of Karen Wilson, Carrie Huckeby, Cindy Rogers and Shelly Miller. They encourage membership before the first meeting to be listed as a founding member.
The Power of 100 Warren County will have a booth at the Autumn Street Fair tomorrow to answer any questions, with the first meeting planned for Oct. 25. More information can be found at www.thepowerof100wc.com, or on the Facebook page, The Power of 100 Warren County.
