NEW ULM – Enterprise North of New Ulm has been selected as the recipient of the first 100 Women Who Care event in New Ulm.
The group met at Turner Hall on Sunday to vote on which nonprofit area would receive funding. Enterprise North, Inc. received the majority of votes from members attending the Turner Hall event.
All members present paid a reduction of $ 100 during the registration process. After registering, members wrote the name of a local nonprofit on a piece of paper. Once everyone was logged in, three nonprofits would be randomly chosen from a hat. The women then gathered to discuss which nonprofit organization should receive the money. The person who nominated the nonprofits would have five minutes to explain why they deserved the donation. At the end of the event, women will vote for their first choice. This time, Enterprise North was chosen.
Enterprise North helps people with disabilities achieve their highest level of independence. The association’s mission is to offer quality services to everyone. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of skills in professional and social development and the expansion of the capacities of each individual.
During the event, a mother of one of Enterprise North’s clients spoke. She said her son loves working at Enterprise North and feels a sense of accomplishment in his job of manufacturing firelighter.
Event organizer Michelle Markgraf said it was an easy vote. The majority of members wanted Enterprise North to receive the funds.
The 100 Women Who Care event is planned as a biennial event. The next 100 Women Who Care event will take place on Sunday April 3, 2021.
