Lauren HighamThe West Australian

A special 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner touched down at the Hyatt as 350 guests gathered to celebrate ten years of collective giving.

The night, including special guest Lisa Bennett — Ms Galaxy Australia 2023, provided a chance to award the recipients of the 100 Women 2023 grant round, as well as recognise the incredible group of previous grant recipients over the last decade.

Five incredible projects — four in Australia and one in India — received $242,470 in funding at this year’s gala, with their work directly benefiting 2,250 women and girls.

Orana House, The Hunger Project, Radiance Network South West, The Water Well Project and Cana Communities were selected through a member voting process for their part in ensuring all women and girls having equal rights to safety, health, education and opportunity.

Joy, tears, dancing, laughter filled the room, where new friendships were forced and old friendships rekindled, to soak up the collective sense of hope, achievement and inspiration.

The grassroots charity — 100 Women — aims to ignite diversity in philanthropy through the power of collective giving to empower women and girls globally.
