It’s time again for our annual scholarship fundraiser! With your continued support, AFWA is proud to be able to award a deserving woman studying accounting or finance with a scholarship again this year. Please join us in supporting our future fellow women accounting and financial leaders! We have found the basket raffle to be a fun and effective way to raise dollars for this great award, so we will continue it again this year. Basket donations can be any size and contain anything you think someone might enjoy. We recommend a value of $20-$100, and they do not have to literally come in a basket. Also, this year members will enjoy a free lunch on AFWA. You can put the money towards bidding on the baskets! We look forward to seeing you there to celebrate the season, talk, play a few games and raise money for the scholarship fund! We hope to see you there!
