The Wisconsin Women of Color Network, Inc. will host its annual scholarship fund-raising event on Saturday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Double Tree Hotel, 525 West Johnson Street. Once a year, WWOCN appeals to its members, family and friends to raise money for the Wisconsin Women of Color Network Scholarship Fund. WWOCN is actively seeking donors, vendors and exhibitors to make the event a success.

The WWOCN Scholarship Fund is an umbrella for several specific awards given each year. Their goal is to assist women in their pursuit of education, employment and economic independence. The Fund includes the Mabel Smith Memorial Scholarship, the Cammer-Hill G24rant, the Hattie J. Hilliard Award, and the Future Leaders Fund. Our Funds are set up for Wisconsin residents who plan to attend accredited Wisconsin vocational and technical schools.
