We are so grateful to all our members and guests who attended the 2022 Garden Party Scholarship Benefit. The sun was out for awhile and the garden was blooming. Thank you to SBWN member Rita Flores and her husband Todd Davidson owners of Sage Ecological Landscapes for sharing their beautiful space. Singer Loren Radis provided the perfect music for the evening. We appreciate SBWN Member Denise Lowe and her husband John for pouring wine donated by Absolution Cellars and Denise. We raised over $1100 for our Scholarship Program.
SBWN is accepting scholarship applications and nominations for a Cuesta College female re-entry student. Members and the community may nominate a woman whose education would benefit from this scholarship opportunity. The ONLINE Application/Nomination is available under the ABOUT SBWN tab. DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
South Bay Women’s Network (SBWN) awarded (11) scholarships of $500 each this year to Cuesta College re-entry female students. Potential recipients either submitted an application themselves or were nominated, and each was required to be a female Cuesta College re-entry student, defined in the educational system as one who attends college following an interruption in their post-high school education. Funds for these scholarships were raised through the Garden Party Scholarship Benefit, SLO Witches Paddle and generous donations from SBWN members and supporters.
Presentation of our Scholarship winners was held on December 14, 2021 at The Savory Palette Wine Bar in Morro Bay.
