100+ Women Who Care meet in Aspen

Staff report
The Aspen Times
Aspen, CO, Colorado

ASPEN – The Roaring Fork Valley chapter of 100+ Women Who Care will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Aspen’s Limelight Lodge to determine its next benefactor. All women are welcome to attend.

The local branch of 100+ Women Who Care was founded in spring 2011 and since has donated more than $22,000 to four local charities – Colorado West Regional Mental Health, English in Action, Childhelp and Alpine Legal Services.

The concept is simple: A group of women commit to donating $100 each four times a year, or a group of four women join together as a team to reach the requirement by donating $25 each time.

The group meets quarterly, checkbooks in hand, to decide the beneficiary. Any Roaring Fork Valley nonprofit is eligible; the process of choosing the charity begins with members placing their anonymous suggestions in “the hat.” Three are chosen at random, at which point the member who nominated the charity drawn gives a brief explanation of why she chose it. The membership then votes, a beneficiary is selected, and dozens of $100 checks are written out. At the following meeting, a representative from the winning charity tells the group how it spent the money.
