100 Women Who Care – Chelsea Area is expected to raise an estimated $10,000 for a selected nonprofit at their next Impact Award meeting on Tuesday, February 6, 2024.

The meeting will be in-person at 305 S. Main Street, Chelsea State Bank’s Downtown Chelsea Location. There will also be an option to participate virtually, over Zoom. The Impact Award meeting is preceded by a social hour starting at 6pm with beverages and light snacks. At 7pm the 1-hour meeting begins during which three member-nominated charities will pitch their cause. The one that obtains the majority of member votes receives the Impact Award generated by each member’s $100 donation.

The three selected charities will be announced on January 27, 2024, on the Giving Circle’s website (www.100wwcchelsea.org) including Barn Sanctuary, Purple Rose Theatre, and Dexter Senior Center. Each nonprofit will have a designated amount of time to give their pitch to the membership before the voting begins.

Previous donations from this giving circle total more than $135,466:
