WE AWARDED "EQUESTRIAN CONNECTION" $11,500; DETAILS BELOW. OUR NEXT MEETING IS AUGUST 12TH -- PLAN TO COME AND BRING A FRIEND!
WHAT CAN HAPPEN WITH THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE GIVING?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 for a worthy cause. That's impact. And it only takes an hour.
No volunteering, no telemarketing, no event planning, no silent auction donations to solicit. Simply a great way to give back right in our own community. Come join with us.
WE ARE ONE YEAR OLD!
Our May meeting marked our one year anniversary! Our 100 WWC chapter raised $43,480 in our first year. Thanks to each of our members for their generous support of our mission. We celebrated with delicious mini cupcakes from Bent Fork Bakery in Highwood.
FIRST MEMBERSHIP MILESTONE REACHED!
We have exceeded our first milestone: 100+ members! Help us continue to grow our membership by inviting a friend to our next meeting. Expanding the group will help our collective donation to local charities continue to grow. In an effort to manage our membership support, we will only be accepting new individual members at this time. This does not affect current teams, who are welcome to continue as teams. If you have any questions about membership, or would like us to send information to prospective members, please feel free to contact Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EQUESTRIAN CONNECTION AWARDS PRESENTATION
Equestrian Connection was thrilled to receive our award of $11,500. Several 100 WWC members went to present the checks, and were able to tour the arena and facilities.
CONGRATULATIONS TO "EQUESTRIAN CONNECTION"
Congratulations to our May 2014 award recipient, Equestrian Connection, nominated by member Dawn Fleischman. The mission of Equestrian Connection is to improve the physical, mental and emotional well being of those with special needs by providing equine assisted and therapeutic programming. Dawn, who has volunteered "at the barn" for six years, shared that the donation would be targeted towards adult programming. Check back later on our site to see our final donation total.
Thanks also to our two other nominating members supporting great causes: Dawn Anderson (Bernie's Book Bank), and Ann Maine (Youth Farm, Lake County Forest Preserve). We also greatly appreciate Philly G's, who again provided our group a wonderful venue.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, August 12th. Philly G's has graciously agreed to host us again.
