"Giving Without Going" - Along with many cherished celebrations, the annual AAUW St. George branch Gala Fundraiser is no exception to the traditions we have had to re-think this year.
While the circumstances of our fundraising have changed, the need has not!
Our advocacy programs rely on your generosity. Our mission continues, no matter how we go about it.
“Giving Without Going” is our theme this year, an apt one for our approach during Covid-19. Please register for our January 2021 Zoom meeting to join us for a kick off of a month of giving and to tune in for more details for the January virtual “Gala.”
