100+ Women Who Care Grows to 278 Women in First Year

On July 29, 100+ Women Who Care of Northern Door County celebrated its first anniversary. The organization now numbers 278 women (149 teams) who are having an important positive effect on the Door County community. Founded by Ann Morgan and Peggy Reineck, the group met for the first time in July 2018 with 68 women in attendance.

The organization’s growth has been so fast that last quarter, members discussed creating alternatives for how the monetary award will be distributed and voted to allocate part of the award to each presenting nonprofit. The main awardee of July’s donations, totaling about $17,000, was the Door County Medical Center Auxiliary, which received $10,000. The Auxiliary, now 75 years old, has nearly 200 members who support the medical center’s initiatives. The Boys & Girls Club of Door County and BookNook Gardens were the runners-up and will split about $7,000. The next meeting of 100+ Women Who Care of Northern Door County will be Oct. 28, 5:30-8:30 pm, at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor; the formal meeting will run 6:30-7:30 pm.
