Investing in the future, the University Women of Cambria (UWC) annual online auction fundraising event began on Monday and will end on Sunday, December 5. UWC works diligently throughout the year raising funds for scholarships for graduates from Coast Union and Leffingwell High Schools.
The online auction is the biggest charity event that the UWC sponsors. All proceeds from the auction will be directed toward scholarship awards for 2022 graduating seniors. Since this graduating class is larger than the past few years, we are depending upon the generosity of the community more than ever. Last year, thanks to the community’s generous support, UWC was able to award $1,000 to each student who applied for a UWC scholarship. Auction items include wines, gift certificates, art, home décor, jewelry, weekend getaways, and even a fully decorated tree with handmade ornaments from local artists. This is a wonderful and easy way to do some holiday shopping for family and friends. Please support this worthy cause and the students’ future education by bidding on the items by going to the auction site (biddingowl.com) and clicking “Featured Auctions” or by arriving to the auction site directly at: biddingowl.com/Auction/home.cfm?auctionID=24575. The UWC also is gratefully accepting monetary donations for the scholarship fund.
