100-Plus Women Who Care to meet Monday at Pine Grove

IRON MOUNTAIN — The organization 100-Plus Women Who Care in Dickinson County will have its second quarterly meeting of 2019 on Monday to decide which fortunate area non-profit program or agency gets to benefit from the group’s collective generosity.

Though the second quarterly meeting, this will be the group’s first session in 2019, as the first-quarter meeting in February was cancelled due to inclement weather.

As in the past, participating women will contribute $100 each, as individuals or groups of four, into a pot that usually totals about $23,000.

They then listen to three pitches for who should receive the entire amount. They also will hear from the Medical Care Access Coalition, which received about $22,500 from the group in November.

Members are encouraged to nominate a worthy 501(c)(3) organization in the area. If four meetings have passed since a group was selected for the donation, it is eligible to be nominated again.

Registration for Monday’s meeting will begin at 5 p.m., with the session to start at 6 p.m. at Pine Grove Country Club in Iron Mountain. A pizza buffet will be available afterwards for $8 a person.

Since December 2012, 100-Plus Women has raised more than $513,400 for local 501(c)(3) charities and organizations in the community.

For more information about the organization or for a form to join, email to dc100women@gmail.com. Membership forms also will be available at the door.
