We are an informal group of women who love to GIVE. The Valley of the Sun chapter and its events are run by an Executive Committee of big-hearted volunteers along with the support of very generous sponsors . Our members make their donations directly to the local charities we select resulting in 100% of all donations going directly to those organizations. The goal of our chapter is to support the wonderful work our local non-profits do in funds, exposure and awareness in a minimal amount of time.
A Big Impact
100+ women x $100 = $10,000+ for a local charity in 1 hour – 4 times per year (quarterly). We currently have three (3) groups meeting throughout the Phoenix metro area – Ahwatukee, Scottsdale and East Valley. Our members come from all over the Phoenix metro area to participate. We have donated over $550,000 to local nonprofits.
