Alrusa International and AAUW

Our AAUW NYC and Weschester Expanding Your Horizon(TM) Conference has many supporters. One of our main supporters through the years has been the local New York branch of ALTRUSA INTERNATIONAL. This year Altrusa is having it's fundraiser and it might be of interest to those of you who like the Races. It will be held on June 23 at Belmont Raceway. Anyone interested can contact Maryliz@aol.com.
Remember that like AAUW, Altrusa supports our EYH program because it is helping young women remain interested in Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM).
