A yearlong effort by the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild annual Legacy of Caring volunteers has resulted in an unprecedented $100,000 raised to benefit local charities.

“Celebrate in knowing that the monies we raised as a team will go a long way towards making a difference in the lives of women and children in our very own community,” Betina Shearer, Legacy chairperson told Legacy volunteers. “And that has always been our focus and mission.”

More than 20 charities, primarily in Pickens and Dawson counties, will benefit from the Legacy efforts this year. The funds were raised primarily through the very successful Gala and Marketplace events. New to the Marketplace this year was a vintage car show that drew the attention of car buffs.

Featured magician/comedian Joe Turner played in front of an overflow Gala crowd on the Big Canoe Veranda prior to a very successful live auction.

“The experience of working with you has enriched my life in so many ways,” Shearer told the volunteers. “I am so thankful for this experience to serve with you.” 

The Legacy of Caring has a long tradition of success and Shearer said that the future is very good hands under the leadership of Susan Willson and Debbie Goldman, 2018 Legacy co-chairs.

The Women’s Guild has raised almost $1,700,000 over the past 29 years for local charities and Causes.
