The 100+ Women Who Care Quinte celebrated a significant milestone on Wednesday night.
The philanthropic group, which raises money for local charities, celebrated its third anniversary and has raised almost $166,000 over that span.
Tawnya Smith is part of the local leadership team and credits the group’s success to the commitment of the women involved.
Smith says the movement continues to grow and there’s a real sense of community that’s being built within the group.

The group picks a different organization to support at each of its meetings, donating about $10,000 each time and on Wednesday voted to award the money to Continuing On In Education Belleville, which supports local adults with disabilities.
Co-Ed’s Executive Director Chris Houlden tells Quinte News the money can help to make a huge difference in their clients’ lives.
Houlden says the various programs offered by Co-Ed are aimed at promoting inclusion and independence.
She says anyone who wants to stop by and see what the organization is all about, is more than welcome.
