CCL! ANNOUNCES EVENT BENEFICIARY
Central Coast LIVE! Is very excited to announce our 2018 Halloween Harvest Costume Ball Event Beneficiary — THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY WOMEN (AAUW) through its Atascadero branch.
The Atascadero AAUW Inc. is an affiliate of the California and National American Association of University Women. This local branch was founded in 1937 and has 100 members from the communities of Atascadero, Paso Robles, Santa Margarita, Templeton and other members hailing from south county as well.
Friendship, networking, education, and fundraising are just some of the aspects that attract members to this 501(c)(3) organization. The Atascadero branch is among one of California AAUW’s most vibrant and diverse branches, offering women and girls opportunities for personal and professional growth, community leadership, and friendship, while at the same time fulfilling its AAUW’s larger purpose and mission.
The purpose of AAUW is to promote equity for all women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. Atascadero AAUW, Inc. especially focuses its efforts on giving scholarships to: 1) women of all ages returning to college; and 1) to junior high girls to attend Tech Trek camps who might not otherwise break into STEM-oriented careers (science, technology, engineering and math). However, the branch also provides loans for women internationally women (KIVA); educates its members and others on and opposes all types of sexual harassment and bullying (regardless of gender), and encourages its members in other types of community involvement. Its funds also benefit women and girls not just in the communities from which its members are drawn, but nationally and internationally as well.
Atascadero AAUW Inc. will benefit from a portion of the proceeds of the 2018 Halloween Harvest Costume Ball. Learn more about this wonderful organization at: https://atascadero-ca.aauw.net/about/branch/
