“The mission of WOW is to provide an outlet for women in the community to join forces with the purpose and collective passion of supporting the needs of women & children in Haywood County. Predominantly through innovative, diverse and inspirational ways of fund-raising. To become a positive, active and called upon support system for the local businesses, residents and non-profits. To bring to light the forgotten idea’s issues and controversial methods of fund-raising for a community.”
"In 2016, WOW is shifting gears a bit. We will be working diligently on raising funds for the Women of Waynesville with the intention of accomplishing several new endeavors in Haywood County. WOW will be focusing on becoming more of a non-profit business this year, one that will allow our organization to focus 100% of our time on achieving our long term goals and expanded mission of helping the needs of women and children in Haywood County.  Our visions are large and economically impactful, and it is going to require our communities support to make it all happen. We are excited, nervous, willing and ready! We appreciate all the support we can get from you!"                                                                                                                                                                                          Always, Truly, Respectfully                                                                                                                                                                                                               Nikki White, WOW Co-Founder & President

“As a member of WOW, I not only am able to provide support to the community, but also know that the members of WOW are there for me. Add the fact that we have a lot of fun together, and it is an amazing group of women!"                                                                                                                                                               ~ Christine Sievers, WOW Member since 2013

"I am one of the newest members of WOW and I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful group of women.  They made me feel like one of the bunch from the first moment I met them.  Since then I have had the privilege to volunteer for this great organization.  I am so happy to have a chance to support charities that help women and children in Haywood County."                                                                                                                                                                                                              ~ Dr. Linda Sparks, WOW Member since 2015

   

 

 

“To me, it’s incredible to see what we’ve created in such a short amount of time. When you look out there, every single one of those women wants to be part of this organization known as WOW, because we do immense things for the county and these women get more than they ever thought they would out of being a part of us.”     

~ Michelle Briggs, Vice President & Co-Founder of WOW

“It's been a dream in my head since I was much younger, standing in a certain existence with nothing but amazing women around me, feeling empowered from the air they were breathing. WOW is the beginning of that dream for me. It both excites and fills me with fear when I think about how truly powerful we are and to look back and see what we've already done and the amazing impact we have made and to know.... we've only just begun.”
