100 Women Who Care Maui will meet on Wednesday, Dec. 9, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center; a social with dinner and drinks will follow from 6 to 8 p.m.

100 Women who care Maui is a group of women who care deeply about the Maui community.

100 Women Who Care meet for one hour, four times a year; each member brings a check for $100. Every member is eligible to nominate a local charity, nonprofit or other worthy cause. The nominations are put into a hat and three names are drawn at random at each meeting.

A 100 Women Who Care member then makes a five-minute presentation about each cause. Then the group votes and the top vote-getting charity receives all the checks—made out to them on the spot.

At the group’s last meeting, $4,200 was collected for A Cup of Cold Water, a food and clothing distribution service for those in need in the community.

“The Hui No’eau is being incredibly generous in getting the word out to their members about our group and we are expecting to reach our 100 members next week!” said organizer Amanda Prouty.
