THE GREATER DURAND Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. has chosen the 100+ Women Who Care of the Greater Durand Area as its 2019 Organization of the Year. The group was founded in 2016 by Shari Demo, Leslie Dietrich, Kasey Fibernitz, Linda Greeson, Debbie Lintz, Karla Luchenbill and Kathy Wilson. The purpose of the group is to support local not-for-profits by making donations directly to the organization. The group has over 120 members who meet in March and September. Members may nominate any not-for-profit during each meeting. Three names are randomly selected to present. Each presenter will discuss their organization’s needs and how the group, if chosen, will use the funds. Since 2016, over $57,000 has been awarded to local organizations.
The 100+ Women Who Care of the Greater Durand Area will be honored at the Greater Durand Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. Annual Dinner on Thursday, April 18 at the Durand VFW. Tickets are $40 and reservations are required. Please call (989) 288-3715 for more information.
