I guess you would have to be the queen bee and ladies would join as supporters, but a dues-paying sorority doesn't seem right for a nursing home imo. I would see if there's an established group near you that your members might join instead.

If you wish to be an official Red Hat, you must contact the website. Google it. However, our club operates as an official registered Red Hat club, but not all the members belong to the national organization. Our yearly dues are something like $5, which goes into the kitty for such things as get well cards or door prizes at gatherings. We take turns donating door prizes. You could likely get volunteers to donate things for nursing home residents.


If you have a local club, why don't you talk to them, and see if they will give you a hand, just for the fun of it. Red Hats is purely for the socializing -- no good works and no fundraising, although some groups do some "good works" if they think it is fun (decorating a Christmas tree for a fundraising event in the community, for example.). It could be a good fit for a nursing home.
