'Created Here' celebrates woman power
More than 140 attendees of the American Association of University Women Duluth Branch were entertained by local artists at the AAUW scholarship fundraiser on Nov. 6 at the Northland Country Club. "Created Here" was the theme of the fundraiser.
The goal of the event was to raise $4,000 for higher education scholarships for women. Three theater artists also shared their stories. Pat Castellano, Cathy Podesza and Jean Sramek spoke about their journey into theater as Twin Port residents. Birding expert Laura Erickson, a radio host and author, shared her personal story. She said that her grandfather's love of birds was a driving influence in her interest in birding.
