Helpful Hint: If you have nominated a charity and plan to do the pitch if your charity is picked, please check-in and make sure your charities name is put in the 'hat'!
Remember, a 100 Woman member must be present to pitch the charity. If no one has shown up to pitch the charity 3 consecutive times, the charity will be removed from the list, BUT can be renominated anytime.
