Charity Chicks: Resolve to Join Today!

By Casey Bomar, Co-President of Charity Chicks

I finally did it! I actually kept my New Year’s resolution...yes, it was from 2007, but I kept it! Many of you are wondering what it was. Did I lose those last 5 lbs? Did I clean out that garage? Nooooooo still working on those, but I did recently fulfill another goal. With the help of my good friend Jamie Marlowe (pictured right with Casey, left), we have started a new non-profit for women in the Winston-Salem area called Charity Chicks.

We are excited because it allows women the flexibility to give back to the community in whatever way fits their lifestyle. We are both busy moms with school-age and pre-school children, and we realize how challenging it can be to find time for volunteering. We hope that Charity Chicks will make it easy for women to get more involved in their community. Giving back should be fun and rewarding; not just another stressful obligation.

Each year the members of Charity Chicks will dedicate their efforts toward fundraising and volunteering for a local non-profit making a difference in our area. For 2010 we have chosen the Community Care Center. The mission of the Community Care Center is to provide access to high-quality health care services to the uninsured in Forsyth, Stokes and Davie counties. This year, Charity Chicks will be supporting the CCC by providing volunteers and fundraising to promote this worthy cause.

We are pleased to say we have nearly 100 members prior to hosting our Kickoff Party which will take place October 15, at the Westwood Swim & Tennis Club from 7-9 pm. Grab a friend and come out for drinks and desserts, and find out what Charity Chicks is all about!

The creation of Charity Chicks has allowed me to reach one of my personal goals. Through the help of many friends, I have been able to have a dream come to reality. Charity Chicks may be just the type of organization to help you realize one of your goals of giving back. If we could all get together and do a little it would mean a lot. I hope that you will join me and the other chicks on the 15th. As for the 5 lbs and the garage, there is always next year, but don't hold your breath!
