Fall is here and that means it is time for the
Best Ball that you do NOT attend!!!

Each year the HARVEST MOON BALL is held to solicit your support in harvesting funds for the advancement of equity for women and girls – through advocacy, education, and research. These AAUW goals and accomplishments are made possible by supporting our local BAKER-TELFER SCHOLARSHIP FUND or one of the various AAUW FUNDS. The attached invitation (see page 8) provides details on each fund. Just write a check to the scholarship fund or one of the AAUW funds and drop it in the mail.
