Growing out of the Victoria chapter, 100 Women Who Care Saanich Peninsula is looking for members to commit four hours a year to benefitting their local communities, $10,000 at a time.

The group meets once every three months for one hour and members donate $100 each to a non-profit organization that serves the Peninsula. Charities are nominated by members, randomly selected to narrow the choices to three, and voted on.

The inaugural meeting for the Saanich Peninsula group is next Wednesday, May 6 at Glen Meadows Golf and Country Club, 1050 McTavish Road in North Saanich.

Newcomers are welcome to register at the door starting at 6 p.m. and the meeting begins at 7 sharp.

Tax receipts will be issued directly from the selected charity, so be sure to have full contact information on the cheque.
