Since its inception in 1989, the Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild has raised over $1.4 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 a gala and auction and a marketplace including a juried arts and crafts show.
In 2016, the Women’s Guild raised $82,000.00 to benefit charities that focus on enabling the well-being of women and children by providing life skills to overcome the cycle of poverty, oppression or substance abuse.
