A new charity group in Cayman called 100 Women Who Care has already exceeded its nominal number by attracting more than 300 members – before it holds its first meeting.
With one month to go until the inaugural meeting, the group still hopes to bring in even more supporters. The first meeting of the Cayman Islands chapter will be held on Oct. 14 at the Grand Cayman Beach Resort.
The concept of the group is this: Take 100 women with $100 each and put them in a room. Three charities explain why they need a financial boost, and the 100 women vote on which one will receive all of the money on the spot. According to the group, the meetings provide the perfect opportunity for women to get together and make a collective difference, as well as a chance to network and mingle.
Maya Lewis, a representative from the organizing committee, said, “We’re really looking forward to our first meeting…the Grand Cayman Marriott has generously donated their ballroom to host the event and we’re thrilled to have some very charitable local businesses on board as sponsors who are helping us create a fantastic environment for our first gathering.”
Earlier this year, another newly established group, 100 Men Who Give A Damn, raised $21,500 at its inaugural meeting for Meals on Wheels.
Sponsors who have already signed up to support 100 Women Who Care, Cayman Islands include: Ogier, Sotheby’s International Realty Cayman Islands, Signs of Paradise, Trees4life, Tea Time in Cayman, The Security Centre and BlackBeard’s.
