Update on Funds, Legacy Circle, AAUW CA Annual Meeting By Charmen Goehring
Although I had planned to host a silent auction to benefit the Greatest Needs Funds in April, I
have yet to hear from anyone expressing interest in participating. Generally, we have benefited from a small auction in January at the annual Interbranch Council luncheon — we did not have that opportunity this year with the event on Zoom. I am looking for members to donate items. (It can be a service offered, physical item or specialty — for example, I just won a bid for three months of oranges delivered to my house next winter in another auction.) I just need a picture or two of the offering and a sentence or two describing it. If we have sufficient interest, we will run the online auction in May. Please contact Charmen Goehring for more information.
I would also like to congratulate and thank Ruth Werner for making the decision to join the Legacy Circle. By pledging to leave a gift to AAUW, Ruth is living her values and dedication to equity for women and girls. If you would like to follow Ruth’s example and join the other Sacramento members who have already made plans to support AAUW’s mission into the future, click here or visit https://www.aauw.org/resources/member/support-aauw/leave-a-legacy/ or contact Charmen Goehring.
AAUW CA Annual Meeting – April 17, 2021, 9:30am-1:00pm
From the comfort of your home, come hear how AAUW CA and its branches fared during the past year!
Named Gift Awardees and Activity of the Year will be announced, Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson will be honored for her many years of support, and we will receive an update from National Board Chair Julia Brown. The Speech Trek finalist videos will be shown and the winner named. Jo Harberson’s daughter will announce her final gift and share some words on what AAUW meant to her mother. Legacy Circle members will be recognized (including those in the Sacramento branch!) and we will meet the candidates running for the State Board next month. The event will wrap up with a special treat — the play “We Did It For You”, directed by past State President Cathy Foxhoven.
