The November 2018 meeting marks the five-year anniversary of 100+ Women Who Care - Elmhurst Area. The first meeting was held in November 2013, selecting the Northern Illinois Food Bank as the first donation recipient. The group began with 121 members, and has donated almost $300,000 since that first meeting. We are grateful to all who have been involved throughout the five years, and to Angelo's Ristorante for graciously donating our meeting space.
