A FEW SIMPLE RULES

 
  •  Members or teams donate $100 per meeting (That comes out to just over $1     a day.)      
  •   Teams of 2 ladies may be formed.  The team donates a total of $100 a                meeting.   The team gets one vote per meeting. 
  • ​   Members of 100 Women Who Care STL West who donated the previous            quarter may nominate a charity for consideration. 
  •   Three charities are randomly selected.  The individual who submitted the       charity will be given 5 minutes to make a presentation to the group. 
  •   By ballot, the group will vote, and the majority rules. Even if you don’t care     for the choice, you still must donate. All checks go to one charity.
  •   Two-way ties will be decided by one more round of votes. If a tie persists,       the two names that are tied will go back in the bucket and the recipient will    be drawn at  random.
  •   Only three charities will be presented at each meeting.
  • ​    If you are unable to attend any given meeting during the year, please give      your check  to a member to deliver on your behalf, or mail your $100 check    made out to the  selected charity.
  •   A year after being selected by the group, charities can be re-submitted             for consideration.  Charities that were not selected can be submitted at the   next meeting.
