The third annual AAUW “Spring into Fashion” style show to raise funds for local scholarships will take place on Saturday, May 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Astoria Golf and Country Club. Tickets are available from Seaside AAUW members, at Beach Books in Seaside, and by contacting Linda Schaeffer at firstname.lastname@example.org for the price of $30 for adults and $20 for students. All proceeds go to local scholarships.
Twelve merchants from Cannon Beach and Seaside will select the latest fashions.
The “Breaking Barriers” award will be presented for the third year to a woman who has shown leadership and been recognized for promoting equity for girls and women through advocacy, education, philanthropy research. This year’s honoree will be the Honorable Judge Dawn McIntosh. Judge McIntosh has worked in the juvenile and child abuse units in Multnomah and Clatsop Counties and was named the Oregon District Attorneys Association Child Abuse Prosecutor of the Year. She has taught at Clatsop Community College and was a founding member of Clatsop County’s Lighthouse for Kids, an assessment center for abused children. With just that sampling of her impressive accomplishments, it is clear that Judge McIntosh brings a rich background of experience to her judgeship that makes her highly qualified to be the 2018 “Breaking Barriers” winner.
Plan now to purchase your tickets and be a part of the fun and inspiration at the “Spring into Fashion” event. It is perfect for mothers, dads, grandmothers, daughters, and really the whole family as a part of the celebration of Mother’s Day.
