100+ Women Who Care Valley of the Sun – Q3 Meeting in Scottsdale @ Scottsdale Hilton Resort & Villas
Aug 22 @ 5:30 pm – 5:30 pm

The Concept We are an informal group of women who love to GIVE.  The Valley of the Sun chapter and its events are run by an Executive Committee of big-hearted volunteers along with the support of very generous sponsors. Our members make their donations directly to the local charities we select resulting in 100% of all donations going directly to those organizations. The goal of our chapter is to support the wonderful work our local non-profits do in funds, exposure and awareness in a minimal amount of time. A Big Impact 100+ women x $100 = $10,000+ for a local charity in 1 hour – 4 times per year (quarterly).  We currently have four (4) groups meeting throughout the Phoenix metro area – Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, East Valley and West Valley.  Our members come from all over the Phoenix metro area to participate.  Our goal as a chapter is to donate $500,000 in five (5) years to local nonprofits. Please join us for our third quarter meeting in Scottsdale!   5:30 – 6:30 pm    Social Hour 6:30 – 7:30 pm    Meeting (Kiva Room) Guests are welcome!  Please invite your friends, colleagues and family members to the meeting who are interested in learning more about us and have them register as a guest!
