Bennett College is one of our newest College/University Partners, and we were especially happy to hold our event in their beautiful Global Learning Center. We were welcomed by Dr. Valerie A. Johnson, Bennett College Representative. The luncheon featured beef stroganoff, with arrangements made by Chair Sue Metz.

A highlight of our luncheon was guest speaker, Sandra Hughes, noted local journalist and television personality. Her stories of her struggles to become the first Black, female TV anchor were both amusing and painful as she related overcoming threats and job discrimination.
The silent auction was filled with so many beautiful baskets of goodies and other tantalizing object that everyone had fun shopping. Thanks to Fund Raising Chair, Ellie Dolata, the silent auction and raffle successfully met our goal to support the special national funds at AAUW and some of our local projects.
We are looking forward to our Spring Luncheon on April 25th, chaired by Elaine Morehead. As always, volunteers to help with the event are greatly appreciated.
