100 Women Who Care first meeting postponed

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Due to inclement weather the inaugural meeting of 100 Women Who Care Putnam County has been postponed until Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Inn at DePauw.

Julie Thompson, chair of Putnam County's chapter announced the decision.

"The Steering Committee feels this is the right decision, because we want as many women as possible to be able to join us to choose our very first Putnam County charity," she said.

Although disappointed, she stated that postponing the event would give even more women a chance to join.

"We did not really begin publicizing 100 Women until a month ago. This gives us a little extra time to spread the word."

Women who join by the end of the meeting on Feb. 12 will be Charter Members of Putnam County's chapter of 100 Women Who Care.

Thompson stated that 57 women have committed and paid, another 15 have verbally committed and that many others have indicated that they are very interested. If 100 Women Who Care Putnam County achieves its goal and reaches 100 members, four worthy nonprofits will each receive $10,000 in 2014.

Steering committee members are Julie Thompson, Kelli Croan, Emily Knuth, Malinda Mann, Suzanne Masten, Beva Miller, Elaine Peck, Susan Price and Ellie Ypma.
