Welcome to the Cool List, my blog about cool things happening in Santa Fe. Please share.
Cool Pick of the Week
100 Women Who Care in Santa Fe Wed. Feb. 7, from 6-7 pm at the Scottish Rite Temple. 463 Paseo de Peralta. (Arrive at 5 if you’d like a tour of the Temple.) During our one-hour meeting, we’ll put names of local non-profits in a hat and pull out three. Each will have 5 minutes to make a presentation. Then we vote and to whichever one receives the most votes, we write our checks for $100 (or you can share the vote with a friend or friends and write your check for $50 or $25) and together we raise $10,000. We invite you to become part of this powerful group and to have a positive impact on those in need here in the Santa Fe area, without the time-consuming effort we all associate with fundraising. (Yes, it IS possible!) Please invite your friends and spread the word.
To date, we have raised $189,216 for non-profits in Santa Fe!
