Letter: Association will have event celebrating women

Thanks to Deedee Wright for highlighting the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in her My Turn on Tuesday (“Achievements of women should be recognized”).

The American Association of University Women will Celebrate a Century of Women’s Suffrage with a Gala, “It’s About Time,” at Catawba College’s Crystal Lounge on Saturday, March 7th.

The evening’s entertainment will include vocalists Teresa Moore-Mitchell and Destiny Stone along with the Ladies of Lee Street (Becky Lippard, Mary Ann McCubbin, Carol Harris and Patsy Parnell) and a DJ. A catered meal will be provided by Buttercup Café.

The event will benefit a scholarship fund for local student leaders to attend the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.

To join in this elegant evening celebration of women, order your tickets through Eventbrite.com or contact hansonkelly@ctc.net.
