*** 09/01/2020 See UPDATE at the bottom of this page!***
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out an abundance of caution for our members and the public, we had to cancel our 2020 AAUW Used Book Sale.
We need your help now as we try to find alternative ways to raise money for AAUW National & local scholarships.
While there is simply nothing like the thrill of finding the perfect book at our sale, we have attempted to add a little something to keep the spirit of excitement alive for our online fundraiser.
• For every $20 you contribute to this fundraiser, you will have the opportunity to own one of three baseballs signed by Max Scherzer of the 2019 World Series Champions Washington Nationals. The owners will be randomly selected and contacted. We would like to thank Erica Scherzer for donating these baseballs to help us advance our mission.
For over 50 years the annual Book Sale has been an important fundraiser for AAUW, and a popular start to the school year in McLean and the surrounding areas.
Last year the annual book sale raised over $47,000. We would like to be able to provide the same support for education and women this year but can only reach that goal with your help!
We may have lost the Book Sale, but we won’t stop working on behalf of women and their families. We hope we can count on you for a donation and to help us spread the word about our online fundraiser.
Please share this GoFundMe with your family and friends!
