AAUW fashion show sends three local girls tech camp
August 20, 2013
Three middle school students from Issaquah schools attended the AAUW WA Tech Trek camp at Pacific Lutheran University in July thanks to funds raised by the Issaquah branch of the American Association of University Women.
Issaquah’s AAUW branch held a fashion show in April with a profit of $3,400 to fund the campers’ experience. During the show, women strutted their stuff in styles from the Issaquah Chico’s. The event took place at Timber Ridge at Talus.
The 100 available tickets for the event sold out, and tickets for the 24 raffle prizes “sold like hotcakes,” according to a press release. The resulting profit helped the girls attend the camp, which focuses on the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The Issaquah branch of AAUW meets monthly from September to June. It is part of the national organization that promotes education and equity for all women and girls through public policy efforts, programs and diversity initiatives. Graduates holding a Bachelor, R.N., Associate or equivalent degree from a qualified educational institution may become members.
