Celebrating 120 Years of Friendship & Philanthropy
Since 1899, the American Women’s Club of London (AWC) has welcomed members to London and supported a commitment to offering support, friendship, activities and opportunities for philanthropic work. We are excited to showcase our donated auction items on this site and at the Founders' Day Charity Gala on Friday, 8 March, 2019.
As a club, the AWC organizes various activities ranging from volunteering monthly with hands-on assistance at UK registered charities such as The Ronald McDonald House and The Soup Kitchen to organizing social and cultural events around London and the UK. Each year we honour the founding members of the American Women’s Club by hosting an annual Founders’ Day event that focuses on the importance of giving back.
Founders' Day Gala: 8th of March
To mark our 120th year, members and guests will enjoy a special celebration featuring hot and cold canapés, cocktails, live music and a live auction at the historic Searcys Knightsbridge. Out-of-town guests can stay in one of the exclusively available hotel rooms onsite and enjoy breakfast the following day.
