100 Strong in Beaverton

Quarterly event bringing giving minded women together to recognize and support local non-profits making a difference in Beaverton.

Giving-minded professional women who are impacting our community

100 Women, $100, Once a quarter – One hour

100 Strong in Beaverton was launched November 2014. This growing movement is made up of civic-minded, engaged and motivated gals looking to lift each other up and make a positive difference in our personal and professional lives. Humor, inspiration, motivation and a spirit of giving – We welcome all to join us and learn what we are about!

February 28th’s exercise – We were asked to write down on an index card our personal answer to this question. We did this and then took turns in smaller groups guessing who’s sage advice was whose.

“If you could go back in time to meet yourself at 20 years of age, with everything you have learned and experienced to date, what advice would you give yourself?” Check out the wisdom in the room this morning!

The 2016 – 2017 Purse Drive Project for Project Homeless Connect was a smashing success. We crushed our goal of 500 with over 1200 purses, backpacks and duffel bags. The amount of tooth paste, brushes, combs, shampoo, wipes, tampons and pads, lotions, rain ponchos, scarves, gloves and more was almost overwhelming.

Thank you to all who worked on the project and donated so generously! See you next year :).
