The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

Soar like an ea­gle to raise funds for the Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Univer­sity Women (AAUW), Oak­daleRiver­bank-Escalon Branch’s Tech Trek, Speech Trek, Schol­ar­ships and fund pro­grams that tie into AAUW’s goals of help­ing women and girls reach their full po­ten­tial. Plan to at­tend AAUW, ORE’s Fall Fundraiser on Sun­day, Oct. 22, at 4 p.m. at the Gene Bianchi Cen­ter, 110 S. Sec­ond Ave., in Oak­dale.

As in the past at­ten­dees can en­joy some beer or wine as they peruse the themed bas­kets and silent auc­tion items that some lucky win­ners will take home that evening. There will be de­li­cious ap­pe­tiz­ers to nosh on and the op­por­tu­nity to bid on sev­eral live auc­tion items, in­clud­ing a golf four­some at the Oak­dale Golf and Coun­try Club and a trip for four on a 34foot Catalina sail­boat in San Fran­cisco Bay.

A de­light­ful film about a 13-year-old Kazakh girl in Mon­go­lia who wants to be­come the first girl in her fam­ily of hunters to hunt with a golden ea­gle will con­clude the after­noon’s ac­tiv­i­ties. This film, based on a true story, has spec­tac­u­lar scenery.

Do­na­tions for the fundraiser are $25 per per­son. Tick­ets are avail­able from any Oak­dale-River­bankEscalon (ORE) mem­ber of AAUW or by email­ing the branch at AAUW.ORE@ gmail.com. A lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets will be avail­able at the door.
