100+ Women Who Care of the Leech Lake Area to hold fundraiser
Walker, MN - 100+ Women Who Care of the Leech Lake Area is excited to announce its upcoming fundraiser on Monday, October 2 2023, from 5:00-6:30 p.m. at the Arvig Walker Area Community Center (WACC). The event will bring together over 100 women to raise funds for local non-profit organizations in the Leech Lake area.
At the event, each woman will donate approximately $100,(or what they are able) and the group will vote on a nominated non-profit that deserves the donation. The first event last December raised over $13,000 for the Akeley Regional Community Center (ARCC) Emergency Shelter. The second giving event, held in May, 2023 raised over $12,000 for the Walker Area Food Shelf. In addition, both non-profits qualified for a grant of $5,000 each!
The event is open to all women who are interested in supporting the Leech Lake community and its non-profits. Attendees are encouraged to bring a friend or two to join in the fun and make an even bigger impact.
As for the donation of $100, the organizers say they are not concerned with the dollar amount, “just join us and donate whatever you are able to.”
100+ Women Who Care of the Leech Lake Area is a group of women who come together two times a year to support local non-profits. 100 Women Who Care was started in November of 2006 by Karen Dunigan of Jackson, Michigan, as a brilliantly simple way to raise money efficiently and quickly for local charities. Since then, Women Who Care chapters have been formed all over North America. These groups collectively have donated more than a million dollars to local based-organizations.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference in the Leech Lake community. Save the date on Oct 2, 2023, from 5:00-6:30 pm at the Arvig WACC. More information about the event and the organization can be found on the Facebook Page called 100+ Women Who Care of Leech Lake Area. You may call or text Mar Kuha 218-839-1974 or Margie Richardson 218-760-4715 with any questions. We hope to see you there!
