To celebrate our Give for Good fundraiser on Thursday, September 14, we’re having a party at Captain’s Quarters in their Stone Room (the 19th Century Harrods Creek Tavern). The event will include an appetizer buffet and a cash bar, which we’ll enjoy as we listen to award-winning Louisville writer, Ellen Birkett Morris. The cost for the event is $24 per member (including gratuity). Members may bring one non-member for $28. The ticket fee pays for room rental and the buffet and soft drinks. No part of the price is a donation!

Persons must cancel if needed by September 4. After that, they may pass on their ticket or make the fee a donation to Women Who Write.
