Three charities vie for 100+ Women Strong in Lake County funds

LAKEPORT, Calif. — The first meeting of 100+ Women Strong in Lake County of the New Year will take place at the Soper Reese Theatre in Lakeport on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

The meeting will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Come and enjoy all the excitement and meet your new Steering Committee: Michele Carson, Gretchen Ferguson, Kim Darnell and Nancy Johnson.

There will be mingling, networking, food and beverages, and, most importantly, at the end of the night, a local Lake County charity will be selected to receive a very generous donation that is made possible by women of Lake County.

Women who are interested in joining this organization are welcome to preregister before Jan. 31 to be able to vote in at the February meeting.

If you don’t get your application in by Jan. 31, no worries you’ll be able to vote at the next meeting in May 2023.

Visit the group's website to download the commitment form. You can also visit their Facebook page and find all the information on being a part of this special, amazing group of women making a huge impact on Lake County.

The Lake County chapter, founded in 2017, is part of a worldwide coalition of similar organizations and was created as a community effort to fundraise for Lake County based nonprofit organizations.

The group consists of women in Lake County from all ages, walks of life and professions united by their commitment to donate $400 per year to different Lake County nonprofit organizations.

It meets once every three months and three local, pre-vetted, nonprofit organizations are invited to give brief presentations in hopes of being selected by 100+ Women Strong.

One of the three nonprofits is selected by a majority vote of the group after the presentation and receives $100 from each and every member of 100+ Women Strong, Lake County.

At the conclusion of the event, a winner is chosen and the winning nonprofit will receive a generous donation, made possible by women of Lake County.
