COLUMBIA — Tickets are available for the 47th Annual American Association of University Women Home Tour, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7, from noon to 4 p.m.
Members of the Sonora Branch of AAUW are busy preparing for their major fundraiser of the year, featuring a tour of four outstanding homes in Sonora and Columbia, including the recently restored Curtin Mansion. Tickets are $20 for the affair, which also includes tea and cookies, a boutique, and the popular basket raffle in Faith Hall at the Church of the 49ers, located on Parrotts Ferry Road and Jackson Street in Columbia.
To ease congestion, this year there is a shuttle bus (provided by Linkline Charters) which can be caught at the Columbia Elementary School. It will run continuously between the school and the two homes in the Columbia area between noon and 4 p.m.
Tickets are available at Mountain Bookshop in the Junction Shopping Center and Joan's Boutique in downtown Sonora, and Seven Sisters Soap & Candle in Columbia, or by calling 586-1322. Proceeds are distributed to local women for college scholarships, and to send eighth grade girls to Tech Trek, an annual math and science camp. The Sonora Branch of AAUW also sponsors the Speech Trek Contest for local high school students each November.
