We are a network of over 100 women invested in empowering nonprofits and improving their communities. No committees, no fundraising, no event planning, no silent auction, but in the span of one hour over $10,000 is raised for a local charity. We meet quarterly on the second Wednesday in 2020:

  • February 12th
  • May 13th
  • August 5th
  • November 4th

Each member’s quarterly commitment is $100, totaling $400 per year.
