AAUW Women’s History Month event

Sip and Shop:

Join the local branch of the AAUW in observance of Women’s History Month at a special reception honoring the women who own businesses throughout downtown Wyandotte.  

The public is invited to gather at River’s Edge Gallery on Biddle Avenue between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 13, to meet these exceptional entrepreneurs, explore the gallery, and be entertained by music provided by Heather Hartwick-Gladden, Carol Scott, Doug Scott, and Nancy Gruits, while being served wine and cheese by members of the Wyandotte-Downriver Branch of AAUW.

If you have a business card, submit it for door prize drawing and networking.  

In addition, AAUW will provide a booklet of material and a map featuring the dozens of Wyandotte women-owned businesses, encouraging participants to browse through them during the course of the evening, and to patronize them through March 31.  

The featured establishments will have specially-designed signs posted in their windows to denote their status as being owned by women, and they will make special discounts and promotions available exclusively for those who attend the reception.

Pre-registration is available to attend this free event via email to aauwwd@gmail.com, for planning purposes.

The Wyandotte-Downriver Branch of AAUW is comprised of college graduates as well as anyone who supports gender fairness and equity, individual rights, and social justice for a diverse and inclusive society.
