Thanks to all of you that were able to attend the meeting last evening. There was a lot of positive energy in the room which was great to see.
The selected charity was Alzheimer’s Society of Peel.
Our goal from the beginning has been to get to 100 Members as quickly as possible. We have a great core group of about 65 Members and we would really like to see that number grow. One of our long standing members, Lina Colucci, spoke passionately at the meeting about what 100 Women means to her and she has challenged all of us to bring a friend, neighbor, colleague, relative to the next meeting to get us to our goal. if each member brings one person to the September meeting, we will reach our target of 100 members and it will definitely increase our impact in the community.
Thank you all for your continued support of our chapter and if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Also please make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter for meeting updates and information on upcoming events in our community.
Challenging everyone over the summer to mention the 100 Women of Mississauga group to your friends and family. It’s a great topic to bring up at the summer BBQ. Let’s reach 100 members for our September meeting.

As seen in the local paper SNAP South Mississauga
To close out the month of May, 100 Women Who Care made a very generous donation to the Epilepsy Halton Peel Hamilton. The donation will go towards the organization’s summer camp, Sunny Days Camp, put on for eight weeks during July and August, designed for children with epilepsy and their siblings. In addition to the usual guests during the cheque presentation, the special guest of the night was Bubble. She’s a guide dog-in-training, being foster cared for until she is old enough to go on and help someone herself. Also, on August 18, there will be a golf tournament sponsored by Turtle Jacks and Car Pride Auto Spa with the proceeds going towards the Epilepsy Halton Peel Hamilton.

Located in the Square One Mall is the Square One Older Adult Centre. Within this facility is an organization called Square One Seniors Wellness Services. On October 29, following the 100 Women Who Care Mississauga chapter meeting earlier that month, co-founder Liza Provenzano and member Laurie Usypchuk visited the Centre. They met with Marketing and Community Development Coordinator, Lina Zita and Board President, Esther Williams, who graciously gave them a tour of the Centre. A great deal of activity was underway at the time, evidence that many seniors in our community use the Centre’s services.
The Seniors Wellness Services program provides support to seniors in various aspects of wellness such as running blood pressure, foot care, diabetes and hearing clinics, providing cash management support or counseling support to name a few. We were proud to present our members donation of $5,600 and support this program.
On October 14, SNAP Mississauga covered our most recent event.
…Over 50 women gathered at the Credit Valley Golf Club to network and raise money for charity. Each woman donated $100 that will all be distributed to a selected three charities. The goal is to raise $10,000 a night by reaching an ongoing attendance of 100 women per meeting. A charity is chosen at each meeting and attendees also hear from a guest speaker – the charity recipient from the previous meeting. What an amazing group of ladies! For more information or to help them reach their goal of “100 women Who Care”, contact Liza Provenzano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
