April 2013

I hope to see you all at the meeting on the 10th.  It will be so interesting to get the inside scoop on the Conservation Trust!

Our most important, and only fundraiser, of the year deserves your attention this month!  This is our opportunity to raise money for fellowships and grants for women as we have for the past 3 years with our successful Perfect Pairings Dinners.

This year, we will be treated to a four course dinner at 1919, the new restaurant in the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel!  It is going to be wonderful!  Jennifer and her committee have planned a wonderful evening, and $40 of every ticket sold will directly benefit AAUW’s Education Foundation.

Those of you weho have attended in the past know that the evening promises good food – and a fun evening!  We hope that everyone can attend!

If you cannot attend, there are ways for you to participate:  You can purchase a ticket to be donated or you can directly donate $40 – which will go to the EF.  You can offer something for a silent auction. You can encourage others to purchase tickets.  Every action, no matter how small, works to make this a successful event.  Contact me or Jennifer Bates with ideas and suggestions, and of course, questions.
