FLC Arts Center wins Power of 100 donations of $5,900
Power of 100 Women Lincoln County held its first quarter of 2022 event on February 14th, 2022. At this event, three local non-profit applicants were selected to present for their organization to receive the group’s donation. Family Resource Center, Quatina M. Wolaver Foundation of Hope, and Fayetteville-Lincoln County Arts Center presented for 5 minutes each about their organization’s mission and need for additional funding. Family Resource Center (FRC) spoke about how its organization is a support hub for Lincoln County students and their families, bridging gaps to ensure they evolve together through community support. The FRC has assisted over 500 students with food, basic necessities, healthcare, parenting education, mental health services, and much more. FRC is always in need of donations. Contact Julie Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org to help. Kerstie Wolaver shared her story of the loss of her mother and the creation of a mission to spread awareness and hope to those that need it most. Kerstie’s mother, Quatina M. Wolaver passed away four months after an ovarian cancer diagnosis at the age of 50. Quatina was full of positivity, love, light, and gratitude and the foundation’s mission is to spread that hope and raise awareness. The following symptoms are much more likely to occur in women with ovarian cancer than women in the general population. If you experience feeling full after a few bites, pelvic/abdominal pain, urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency), or bloating, for 14 days in a month, please ask your doctor about ovarian cancer. Visit qmwfoundation.com for more information about how you can help raise awareness for ovarian cancer. Fayetteville-Lincoln County Arts Center shared the extensive needs for repairs at its 110-year-old building in downtown Fayetteville. The Arts Center offers Art Camps, Southern Weekend of Art, and Scholarships annually, as well as many workshops and other events throughout the year. The Arts Center now has OPEN hours Monday-Friday from 1-6 pm where the Classroom downstairs features rotating weekly art stations ranging from beginner to advanced—all for FREE! Their Good Will Ball & Auction will be on April 9th, 2022, at The Manor at ShaeJo. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at flcarts.com. Donations are essential to afford the roof repairs and other crucial projects at the Arts Center. Members then voted and selected Fayetteville Lincoln County Arts Center to be the winner of Power of 100’s donation. This event also raised awareness of these organizations’ needs and how they benefit the community. At last count, FLC Arts Center received $5,900 from Power of 100 Women Lincoln County members with funds still being received. Power of 100 Women is a national movement with a simple concept. 100 Women donate $100. Power of 100 Women meets once every three months to hear from three non-profits that benefit Lincoln County. Then members vote to select one of these organizations and donate $100 directly to the winning organization. Power of 100 was created to see a huge impact on the community by donating $100 multiplied by 100 members for a $10,000 award. Always Endure was selected during the previous quarter meeting and received $5,500. In just five quarterly meetings, Power 100 Women Lincoln County members donated over $31,000!
