Since its inception in 1989, the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild has raised more than $1.8 million to support local charitable organizations in Pickens and Dawson counties. The Guild is proud to continue this Legacy of Caring each year by hosting several events throughout the year.

[95% of monies raised goes directly to charity.]

In 2018, the Women’s Guild raised over $130,000 to benefit charities that focus on enabling the well-being of women and children.
