‘Spring Into Fashion’

Dawn McIntosh

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.

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. 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. McIntosh brings a rich background of experience that makes her highly qualified to be the 2018 “Breaking Barriers” winner.

AAUW, with its nationwide network of approximately 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and 800 college and university partners, has been a leading advocate for equity and education for women and girls since 1881.

Tickets are available from Seaside AAUW members and may be purchased at Beach Books in Seaside or by contacting Linda Schaeffer at sharlu1@hotmail.com.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for students. All proceeds go to local scholarships.
