Tour raises $15,000 to help women scholars
The Danville-Alamo AAUW reports that its Holiday Home Tour on Dec. 12-13 raised more than $15,000 for college scholarships and Tech Trek, a summer math-science camp for seventh-grade girls. All proceeds benefit women in the San Ramon Valley. This year 560 people participated in the two-day event, which featured five fabulous homes decorated for the holidays. The Danville-Alamo AAUW also holds a fund-raising Home and Garden Tour in the spring.
The American Association of University Women scholarships go to women who have lived within the San Ramon Valley Unified School District boundaries during their high school years and are currently a junior in college or above, including graduate school. For scholarship information, go to www.aauw-da.org. This year's application deadline is April 6.
