Behind the Scenes
Earlier this week, Fort St John saw the return of the 100 Women Who Care event. The goal of this group is to gather 100 women in the community to raise funds for non-profits. This was the first event since 2019 and it ended up being a record-breaking one!
Our very own Shailynn Foster attended the event. Here is what she had to say about the night:
“It was a really great experience to be able to attend the 100 Women Who Care event. Because the event was so full, organizers had to begin squishing people into random tables to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend. My mom, who had bought an early bird ticket, didn’t know there was an option to reserve tables, so we were looking for a spot when one was found for us.
To our surprise, it was a group of three of my old friends that I had known since elementary school. Even my mom remembered them. It was really great for both of us to catch up with the three of them. During the night, I met a few people I had only talked to over the phone, including Kelly Amboe from the Hospital Foundation and Adrienne Greyeyes from Nenan.
Overall, it was a lovely night and such a good idea. I hope to be able to attend more events in the future, whether as media or a contributor.”
