120th Annual AWC Founders' Day
Friday, March 8, 2019
Since 1899, the American Women’s Club of London has welcomed members to London and supported a commitment to offering support, friendship, activities and opportunities for philanthropic work. With our annual fundraiser, Founders’ Day, coming up in March we are excited to showcase the various donated auction items along with previewing the Founders’ Day Gala.
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.
At our 8 March 2019 fundraiser, members and guests will enjoy canapés, cocktails, conversation and entertainment at the historic Searcys Knightsbridge. This location offers an elegant Georgian townhome setting in the ever fashionable Knightsbridge. Out of town guests can stay in one of the exclusively available hotel rooms on site and enjoy breakfast the following day.
Check back for Gala details and ticket information.
Dear Business Owner:
Since 1899, the American Women’s Club of London has welcomed expats to London and supported them by offering support, friendship, activities and opportunities for philanthropic work. With our annual fundraiser, Founders’ Day, coming up in March we are asking you to consider making a donation to the Club of goods or services to be sold at our auction.
Funds raised at Founders’ Day support the Club’s ongoing charitable work with UK registered charities such as The Ronald McDonald House, The Soup Kitchen at the American International Church, and DoorStep Library.
At our 8 March 2019 fundraiser, your auction donation will be prominently displayed during the event, highlighted in our monthly newsletter and credited on our website in the this section. Your company's name will also be printed in the Founders’ Day program.
In addition, if you are interested in advertising your goods or services to our members through-out the year, we are offering Founders’ Day Supporters a 50% discount on our advertising in our weekly email newsletter. Please indicate your interest on the donation form and a member of our team will contact you.
You will not only be donating to multiple worthy causes, but you will also be presenting your goods and services to our Club of nearly 300 members. We would be happy to pick up your donation, or it may be delivered to the AWC Club President prior to 1 March. Kindly complete the attached donation form so we may accurately describe your donation.
