100 Women Who Care – Chelsea Area
The charities below have been nominated by members and vetted by the Charities Committee. Additional nominations are accepted up to fourteen days prior to the meeting date.
During the week prior to the meeting, three charities will be randomly selected to present at the meeting. The selected three will then be announced, providing members the option to research these charities in advance. After the charity presentations at the meeting, the majority vote of the members will determine who wins that meeting’s Impact Award. All the other nominated and vetted charities that have not won an award will be included in the next random drawing, up until two years at which time renomination is required.
