Tomorrow evening women will gather at the Granville Inn...women from all over Licking County. Some have been part of this from the very beginning- a year ago....some just attending to get the scoop. Some on their own as individual participants, some with a team....no matter what together they connect and make a difference, have a big impact in more ways than one.
The gist is you commit and you get the option to put a charity up to vote. 3 will be selected and then the membership votes on who gets all the committed money. $100 for individuals, totally $100 for the team. If you are on a team you share the opportunity to nominate a charity and you share the vote. A $100 certainly makes a difference to an organization. As the development officer for a local non-profit and as a volunteer fundraiser for groups, church, school...I can tell you $100 is wonderful and valued. However 100 x 100 or 100 x 50....wow! Seriously things happen with that funding and it happens because women get together tomorrow. Our leadership sets the dates, sends the message and says- lets make a BIG difference, lets have an impact on the people in our lives, in our community.
So I say- join me, be part of this or at least check it out. Friends reading this- reach out to others and invite them! Men reading this- send your wives, sisters, girlfriends, daughters, nieces, neighbors....Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text me at 614 507 0751 come with me...I'll help you find a team, introduce you to my wonderful friends that are part of this difference in Licking County. Life on Newark-Granville Road is always sweeter the night after I've been this group and seen philanthropy at its best- I look forward to sharing that with you tomorrow night- Granville Inn, 6 pm social, 7 pm meeting. Done by 8! I may even know a babysitter or two if you need that to help get you there!!
