Updated: May 18
March, 2022 - 100 Women Who Care-Chelsea Area (100 WWC-Chelsea Area) has recorded it’s fifth Impact Award of $10,660 to the Chelsea Senior Center.
The group celebrated its first fully in-person Impact Award meeting on the evening of February 1, following a reception sponsored by and hosted at Golling Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Chelsea. Of the eligible charities nominated by members, three were chosen at random in advance of the event. Each of the three charities had several minutes to make their best case for their mission to the membership, giving those in attendance -- including those viewing via Zoom for this hybrid meeting -- insight into their contributions to the community. After all the presentations were finished, the members were invited to cast their ballots. Chelsea Senior Center received the majority of the votes and was the recipient of the evening’s Impact Award.
100 WWC-Chelsea Area Member Monica Grofton nominated Chelsea Senior Center for consideration and Bill O’Reilly, Executive Director of the nonprofit organization, represented the charity at the meeting. The non-profit, whose mission is to enhance the quality of life and well-being for area seniors and their families, offers more than 250 recreational, educational, and enrichment activities each month.
100 WWC-Chelsea Area’s next Impact Award meeting is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, June 7, 2022. Women interested in joining can find all the details at www.100wwcchelsea.org along with the list of eligible charities and information on how members can nominate charities.
Since its founding, 100 Women Who Care - Chelsea Area has awarded a grand total of $61,787, including member contributions and matching gifts.
100 Women Who Care--Chelsea Area representatives, including (l to r) Stephanie Doll, Tammy Bridges, Jennifer Smith, Tonya Gietzen and Cassie Kurowicki, are joined by Bill O’Reilly, Executive Director of the Chelsea Senior Center, for presentation of a symbolic check representing the $10,660 cumulatively donated by the local women’s giving circle.
