In one hour, a group of caring women raised $18,000 in donations for a local charity.

The group is 100+ Women Who Care South Georgian Triangle. The group is relatively new in the area, but is growing fast. They meet four times a year for one purpose: to donate $100 each to a charity they all agree on.

On April 25 the group met to make a final decision between three charities: Hospice Georgian Triangle, Victim Services Bruce Grey Perth and Big Brothers Big Sisters. The group chose Victim Services, and nearly all of the 189 women at the meeting donated for a total of more than $18,000 presented by the 100+ Women Who Care to Victim Services Huron Perth Grey.

Their last donation was $14,000 to Salvation Army.

The next meeting is Wednesday, June 13. New members are welcome to check out a meeting with no obligation to donate. Click here for more information on the group and the June 13 meeting.
