Thanks to all who took the time to attend our meeting on last evening. I think you’ll agree that the effort was well worth it as we heard three excellent presentations from very deserving charities, and the friendly camaraderie was evident as the room buzzed with chatting and laughter before and after the business portion. The decision on which charity to get our votes was a tough one but in the end the Winter Street Men’s Shelter operated by the Native Council of PEI came out on top. Shelter Manager, Roberta Cosgrove (supported by her colleague Matt) did an awesome job of telling our group about the difference the Shelter has made in the lives of homeless persons in our community. The other deserving presentations were from Camp Kier and Big Brothers, Big Sisters PEI. While the ballots were being counted, we hear an update from Alex Corbett, Executive Director of Camp Abegweit about plans for a new washroom/shower facility made possible with our donation. Members get your monies in as soon as you can so we can deliver $11,700 to the winner:The attached photo shows the winning charity representatives receiving the big cheque with some members of the 100 Women Organizing Committee.Have a lovely holiday, and a safe and warm winter and we’ll see you at our next meeting March 14.
