Power of 100 Women Lincoln County held its first event on November 9th, 2020. At this event, three local non-profit applicants were selected to present for their organization to receive the group’s donation. Carriage House Players, Junior’s House, and the Lincoln County Museum presented for 5 minutes each about their organization’s mission and need for additional funds. Carriage House Players spoke about how COVID had lowered their event attendance and fundraising opportunities. CHP explained their need for funds to recover the year’s losses and remodel their new building. Junior’s House has also been deeply affected financially by COVID but is maintaining its efforts to assist abused and neglected children in Lincoln County. They also brought Allin their service dog along to show how Allin supports children during difficult times. Lincoln County Museum spoke on their need for volunteers and funds to do routine maintenance on the building and donations to expand the museum. Lincoln County Museum is funded solely by donations and auditorium rentals. Members then voted and selected Junior’s House to be the winner of Power of 100’s first donation. This event also raised awareness of these organizations’ needs and how they benefit the community. At last count, Junior’s House received $4,300 from Power of 100 Women Lincoln County members with funds still being received.
