Those of you who have been with us for the entire journey of WHW know how far we’ve come. The concert is a joyful celebration for our performers and the audience too. The clinic has a core group of “Angels” who provide for Maria both financially and with hands on assistance.

The Garfield Family welcomes us with open arms and invaluable support each year. Francoise Sullivan of Moo Productions continues to manage our Facebook page and the website for Women Helping Women. Sue Matthews and Joe Holt go above and beyond guiding the production to the stage.

This year, in addition to our fundraising efforts for the Marydel free clinic, Maria wanted to reach out to our local community and SHINE A LIGHT on a serious public health issue – the Opioid and Heroin Epidemic – devastating our families on the Eastern Shore. Since 1986, For All Seasons has provided mental health treatment and crisis services to men, women, children and families in the five counties of the Mid-Shore (Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline, Queen Anne’s and Kent Counties) regardless of one’s ability to pay. For All Seasons recently announced a new partnership with Dr. Eric Ciganek and Corsica River Substance Use Disorder Services in their Chestertown office – providing mental health, substance use disorder and Medication Assisted Treatment. Funds raised by WHW will help provide services to community members regardless of their ability to pay.

Women Helping Women is a private account created solely for the collection of funds for this event. 100% of donations and 80% of ticket sales used for Dr. Boria’s Marydel Clinic and a portion for For All Seasons, Inc.
