All money raised by 100+ Women Who Care Mid-Island goes to local registered charities, so we are incredibly grateful for our sponsors. They are a huge help when it comes to the day-to-day operations of our chapter. Sponsors contribute to administrative costs, such as website development and maintenance, graphic design, lanyards, marketing, photography, printing, room rentals and other administrative incidentals.
A big warm thank you to all the sponsors who helped us get up and running.

From hotdog sales supporting local schools and youth programs to their save-a-tape program, team sponsorships and their participation in Help Fill a Dream, they are always giving back to the community.
