It was an evening of big impact on April 10 when 320 women gathered at Lynn University’s Wold Performing Arts Center to award $320,000 to five nonprofit groups in southern Palm Beach County. The event was Impact 100 Palm Beach County’s Grand Awards Celebration, and guests included women who had made a $1,000 donation to become an annual member. Those funds are pooled every year to make $100,000 grants to deserving charities in the categories of education, environment, arts and culture, family and health and wellness. Each of the finalist nonprofits had the opportunity to describe their project, their vision and what the high-impact grant would mean for their organization and the community. After the presentations, Impact members voted and the three with the most votes received a grant of $100,000 each.
