AAUW Newark Eleanor Roosevelt Luncheon
The AAUW Newark Branch had their Annual Eleanor Roosevelt Luncheon at Vita Nova Restaurant, October 16, 2017. Members and guests come together to enjoy the great cuisine prepared by the University of Delaware Students Hospitality Team and raise funds for the AAUW Eleanor Fund. We discussed what we know about Eleanor Roosevelt and how important she was and still is to women. and the world as a whole We gave out gifts that focus on Eleanor Roosevelt and enjoyed a fun quiz to test our knowledge of her life and accomplishments. No worries if you missed it this year. We look forward to seeing you next year.
