Get ready for the FAWCO annual conference

FAWCO online auction

So much is happening this month, and as your FAWCO rep, I am thrilled to see so many engaged members. Here’s a peek at things to look forward to:

International Women’s Day – Sunday, March 8.  Show  your support by turning everything purple! Purple is the official color of this year’s theme: “Make it Happen“. So, wear purple, turn your emails purple, host friends for a purple tea, purple lunch, etc.

The FAWCO Annual Meeting March  25-28 will be jammed-packed with informative sessions that Sheri and I will relay to everyone next month. Meanwhile, here’s how YOU can be a part of the activities:

  • Participate in the FAWCO online auction!  All you have to do is register and then bid on the items ranging from jewelry and artwork to beach holidays and ski trips!  All proceeds benefit the FAWCO philanthropic programs: Education Awards, Development Grants, NEED scholarships as well as the Target Project: “Free the Girls”.
  • Education Award winners will be announced at the FAWCO Annual Meeting . (One of our members applied to for an Education Award, so fingers crossed!!!)
  • Development Grant (DG) winners will be announced at the FAWCO Annual Meeting. We did not submit a DG application this year. Why not next year?
  • Purchase Raffle Tickets for the Friendship Quilt AND diamond and emerald bracelet, either online  or from me at the membership meeting next week.
