100+ Women of Northern Door County (100+WWC, 100wwcnortherndoor.org) selected three local nonprofits in July to record presentations for its members to view. Members voted for the one they felt was most deserving of the primary award, and the results were announced during a July 20 virtual meeting.
Northern Door Children’s Center received the main award of $10,000. The center, established in 1986, seeks to provide high-quality early-primary care in a safe, secure environment that enhances children’s personal growth and educational development. Northern Sky Theater and Third Avenue Playhouse will also receive approximately $4,500 each.
Gloria Heck and Maribeth Hetherington of the DCMC Auxiliary – a main awardee in July 2019 – also made a virtual presentation. The $10,000 the auxiliary received was used to open a new dental room in the DCMC Skilled Nursing Facility.
The next meeting of 100+WWC will be Oct. 26, when members will learn about the Open Door Bird Sanctuary, Friends of Peninsula State Park and the Adopt a Soldier Care Package Program.
Since its inception in 2018, 100+WWC has raised and awarded $138,000 to local nonprofits.
