100+ Women Who Care - 2nd Quarter

In January, I posted about an organization that I participate in called 100+ Women Who Care. At that time, 100+ Women Dayton had 107 members. As of our April meeting, we had 166 members!! That translates to $16,600 dollars donated to a non-profit. That kind of money MAKES a difference locally!

The 2nd Quarter recipient is Clothes That Work. Clothes That Work provides interview appropriate clothing and personalized, confidence building image services for clients. The 100+ Women donation will be used to provision of large-sized clothing for both men and women since there are never enough garments of those sizes.

An update from Dayton Children's Hospital, the second 100+ Women recipient, provided examples of how the 100+ Women donation has helped through the needy patient fund. In the midst of the great fear and trials of having a child critically ill, the needy patient fund has helped with rent, with electric and gas bills, in any number of ways to take some of the burden off the family.

You can make a difference locally! Join 100+ Women at our next meeting on July 15!

AIDS Resource Center RED Event

I'm a little late posting about this event...but here it is. John and I sponsored a table (with the help of our friends) for this spectacular event. Every two years, ARC hosts what was generally referred to as the "table top event." This year they took it WAY beyond just table tops...entire rooms were created. Joining John and I for this year's event were: Bruce and Ellen Holroyd, Lillian and Dave Sullivan, Steve Makovec, and Lavonda Webster.

If you didn't make it to the Table Top event here are a few more dates to mark on your calendar:
Red Ribbon Society, 26 September, hosted by John and I on the roof of the Firefly Building
Masquerage 2008, 18 October {See photos from the 2007 event}
