Group benefits


REINBECK — Interested women throughout Grundy County communities are invited to the kick-off for Grundy County 100+ Women Who Care at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 28 at Oak Leaf Golf Club. The idea of bringing together local women to benefit community nonprofit organizations is inspired by hundreds of Women WhoCare groups around the country.

Plans call for the Grundy County Women Who Care group to meet three times a year to hear brief presentations on a few of Grundy County’s nonprofit organizations. Group members then select one charity at each meeting and women contribute $100 directly to the cause that night. The members of the group are able to make a collective donation to the charity selected at each meeting.
