Book Sale

2021 Book Sale Postponed
Successful Fundraiser Held

McLean AAUW regrets that we had to postpone our annual book sale for another year due to ongoing safety concerns resulting from COVID 19.  We hope to have one in 2022, but in the meantime we held a different fundraiser in 2021.

Shown are winners of the fundraiser memorabilia: top row, from left to right, Phyllis Yoshida, Maureen Stratford, and Fran Pearce. Bottom row, from left to right, Becky and Jim Kilbourne, Casey Scott Laxton, and Marion Kettering. Center, autographed Nationals memorabilia signed by Max Scherzer.

The fundraiser included an outreach directly to members and a GoFundMe fundraiser to the public. Seven National’s baseball memorabilia items were signed by Max Scherzer and were included in the GoFundMe fundraiser. Donors to our GoFundMe fundraiser had the opportunity to own one of these items through a randomized blind drawing which took place on August 24th.

The grand total of our fundraising efforts was $21,908.17. The McLean Area Branch of the American Association of University Women is most grateful to Erica and Max Scherzer for their generous contribution of memorabilia for our fundraiser, as well as everyone who generously donated to promote our mission to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
