Attention new members … we’re having a party! Come get acquainted with other new members and the Membership Team on Thursday, May 3, at 7 pm at Headquarters. If you’re a new member who has joined in the last year or so and haven’t been able to come to a New Member Social before (or even if you came to the one in January and want to come again!), we look forward to getting better acquainted. Snacks and drinks will be served. Please RSVP to Membership@aauwsanjose.org.

 


An Adventure in Wine: California Cruisin’
Fundraiser Benefiting AAUW Fund and LAF
Sunday, May 6, 3-5 pm
Tessora’s Barra di Vino, Downtown Campbell

The AAUW Fund and Legal Action Fund (LAF) programs will host a wine tasting fundraiser on Sunday, May 6, at Tessora’s Barra di Vino, 234 E. Campbell Ave. We’ll go California Cruisin’, enjoying wines from five California wineries, and appetizers, too. Tessora’s Barra di Vino is a woman-owned and operated company. A free parking garage is nearby.

The Legal Advocacy Fund is the largest fund in the United States focused on sex discrimination against women. AAUW is one of the largest funds in the world supporting graduate women. The wonderful programs AAUW sponsors nationwide are possible because of the generous donations of our members.

Advance tickets are $50; $60 at the door. We encourage you to purchase bottled wine while at the event to enjoy at home. You will receive a 10% discount and 10% will be donated back to AAUW San Jose. If you’re unable to attend, your donation is welcome.

We estimate the fair market value of the goods and services received to be $30. For tickets, please contact LAF VP Louise Persson or Fund VP Thea Jacobs.
