January 31st LAF Luncheon
Eileen Moore, Associate Justice of the Fourth District Court of Appeals, Division Three, spoke eloquently at the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) Luncheon on January 31th. Over 175 members and guests filled the Clubhouse for her presentation on “Gender Results: Hollywood vs the Supreme Court.” Pat Allegier, was the MC for the event and welcomed all. Donna Lilly from AAUW CA promoted the National Convention in San Diego before Eileen Moore began her presentation. Later at this fundraising luncheon for LAF, baskets were raffled off from various AAUW branches in South County and the Orange County Interbranch Council.
The Laguna Beach, California branch of AAUW offers opportunities for women in Laguna and surrounding communities to meet and network with other interesting women. We have members in Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Capistrano, Newport Beach, San Clemente, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Fountain Valley and others.
In addition to monthly meetings, we offer many interesting exciting programs and events, focused on having fun, making friends, and exploring topics of interest to women. Our branch also has several Interest Groups-art, books, poetry, international affairs, etc. - where members with similar interests meet regularly for discussions, tours or to just relax and enjoy each other’s company.
We also have several fundraising events each year that are open to members and non-members. Through grants and scholarships we use proceeds from these events to support education for women at all levels, from pre-school through graduate school.
