Cool Pick of the Week100 Women logo

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!
