On March 15, 2023, 82 of our 223 members were in attendance at our eleventh voting meeting.  Members are able to nominate a charity while having a representative from the charity make the presentation. This format allows us to learn about three worthy Sarasota charities and our members’ passion for them.

Congratulations to all of them.

Good Samaritan Pharmacy & Health Services was the selected charity

We raised $21,750

Through their internal  fundraising efforts, Good Samaritan Pharmacy & Health Services secured an anonymous matching donation of $21,750, doubling the 100 Women Who Care donation to a total of $43,500.
