Women's Group Raises $22,000 for Non-Profit in One Night

IOWA CITY, Iowa - A new organization in eastern Iowa has plans to benefit different non-profit organizations, four-times a year.

The Hawkeye Chapter of the "100-plus Women Who Care" had its first event Thursday night in Iowa City. It's a pretty simple idea.
Each woman comes with a blank check for $100, then they nominate deserving organizations, then they draw three at random. Finally, they vote, and the winning organization receives all the checks on the spot.

On Thursday, the women donated $22,000 to "Table to Table," which collects food that stores and restaurants can no longer sell and then distributes it to agencies all over the Iowa City area.

"I like to refer to as special philanthropy, because we only meet for 90 minutes and were able to write a very significant check at the end of the evening for a valuable cause," Vanessa McDonald, Founder, of the Hawkeye Chapter said.

The other Women Who Care events this year will be in June, September, and December.
