AWFA Silent Auction

You are invited to a wine and cheese reception for fun, fellowship and fund raising by the Association of Women Faculty and Administrators (AWFA). The reception will be followed by a silent auction on March 21, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Penn Women's Center, 3643 Locust Walk. A wide variety of items ranging from original paintings to elegant shawls and tickets for local dining out will be auctioned silently. Prices will range to suit all budgets. You do not need to be a member of AWFA to attend this event.

AWFA promotes fellowship among professional women on campus, and presents awards (Alice Paul, Lenore Rowe Williams, Robert E. Davies, Lynda Hart) for distinguished accomplishments. AWFA also nominates women to participate in HERS, a professional development program for women leaders in higher education, held at Bryn Mawr College each summer. It is to support these activities that we are holding our fundraiser.

The Palladium Restaurant is generously donating the reception.

In order to have an estimate of the number of attendees, we would appreciate your response by e-mail to: We look forward to sharing an enjoyable evening on March 21 at the Women's Center.
