HAMBURG — On July 10, Cradle Beach was awarded a $10,000 grant from the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County Women’s Leadership Council. At an event held at the 20th Century Club, 105 women gathered to choose a local non-profit organization to receive the first-ever 100 Women Who Care grant. Each attendee made a nomination for a charity and Cradle Beach was randomly selected.
Tomasina Stenhouse, who nominated Cradle Beach, was chosen to speak about the charity.
Cheri Alvarez, Cradle Beach chief operating officer, accepted the contribution. “This was an absolutely amazing night, to be in the midst of so many women who are passionate about our community. We are thrilled to have been chosen for the grant and we plan to use the grant to offset the costs of sending children to Cradle Beach’s summer enrichment camping program.” That program serves nearly 800 children with disabilities and children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, every summer.
