AAUW receives concert proceeds
ESCANABA – Proceeds from the second of a series of concerts held at Northern Sun Winery in Bark River featuring the guitar-flute duo, “Folias,” benefitted the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
“We’ve chosen four community groups to receive the proceeds from our concerts,” said Susan Anthony, co-owner of Northern Sun Winery with her husband, David. “This month’s recipient is AAUW. We like the work they do, particularly the scholarships they fund for women students at Bay.”
“We are very happy that Dave and Susie chose the AAUW to receive this generous donation,” stated Margaret Carignan, president of the Delta County branch of the AAUW. “We are committed to helping women particularly in the area of education and pay equity.” She added, “It was so enjoyable to sit outside in a beautiful setting and listen to wonderful musicians.”
AAUW is open to women and men who have an associate’s degree or higher, including an RN degree. Membership information is available by contacting Sharon Gray at 241-4276.
