The Henry County Community Foundation is excited to announce the winning organizations from the fifth annual Women’s Circle of Friends Gala, held at the Art Center in New Castle. This year’s three non-profit finalists were the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Henry County 4-H Association, and Victory Lane Camp. At the gala, members participated in an evening of philanthropy, fun, a cocktail buffet, and voted on a nonprofit organization to receive the pooled donations that would help strengthen Henry County.
The three finalists gave short presentations about their organizations, with attendees voting after the presentations. Members of the Women’s Circle voted, resulting in a tie between the Henry County 4-H Association and Victory Lane Camp. Kelsey Meyers of 4-H and Tiffanny Youngquist of Victory Lane Camp accepted the grant on their organizations’ behalf. Both organizations will receive grants in the amount of $2,895.75. Fellowship of Christian Athletes will receive a grant for $450.
The Women’s Circle of Friends committee chose to award a grant from the Women’s Circle of Friends for Women Endowment Fund for $939 to ICAP Women’s Clinic, with Nancy Lewis speaking on the clinic’s work in the county.
