Spouses, Family, and Friends Welcome


Dear Women Who Care Members:

Save the Date! Our June 7, 2023 hosts are Kent and Susan Riddle, who have invited our members to celebrate their 10-year anniversary as Women Who Care of Kent County, at The Shire, located on their property in Lowell. This is a rare opportunity, not to be missed – and we plan to commemorate in grand style!

To date, Women Who Care of Kent County has raised over $630,000 for over 61 Kent County non-profit organizations, due to the generosity and philanthropic hearts of its members. Your steering committee has been hard at work. Along with our meeting, we have a celebration planned, unlike any other we have ever organized. Your ticket will include drinks, appetizers, dinner, entertainment provided by the Edye Evans Hyde Trio, and a commemorative gift.

Tickets: $100 per person
