The July 22nd meeting was held at The Rock in Marcellus. The chosen charity was the Underground Railroad Society of Cass County, with donation of $2200. Also announced that night was that we have given over $20,000 to charities in the last 21 months, that's great news!!


Tonight (4-15-2015) was a very special meeting. The membership voted to donate to Beckwith Theatre in memory of Karen Pugh, a fellow member of 100 Women who care who dedicated her life to philanthropy. We raised $1800 tonight, with many more being sent directly to the organization.  Ordeana Sala gave some great insight to Karen and her dedication to Beckwith for the past 25 YEARS, "Karen loved performing on the stage, but equally enjoyed supporting others by watching them perform". Karen was a founder and financial backer of the Beckwith Theatre Company and actively promoted her passion for the arts throughout the community. Please visit (and like and share) our Facebook page to see the full memorial. If you couldn't make the meeting and would like to send in your donation, please mail to;
