An Evening of Arts and Fashion

January 23rd, 2012

Thanks to ConocoPhillips, our corporate sponsor, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has become one of the most successful new organizations at Oklahoma State University. We, as women of this distinguished organization, are focused on "breaking through barriers for women and girls" in all aspects of life. As such, we are aspiring to be women of philanthropic service and leadership. With this goal in mind, we have developed an in-depth business plan to create our first annual philanthropic event, "An Evening of Arts and Fashion."

AAUW has been planning for months to see this event come to fruition on Friday, March 16, 2012. This event will be a formal evening of arts and fashion, including dinner, wine, dance, song and fashion created by top designer Stella Thomas. Stella's work was recently featured in the Miami Art Basel, she won the 2010 Dallas Designers Display Competition, which then took her to the Couture Competition in New York City and her fashion will be worn by models in the upcoming Ferrari campaign. Throughout her career, she has designed for international royalty and superstars such as Jada Smith, Jimmy Choo, and many others.

With Stella's sensational fashion designs worn by our own models from Oklahoma State University, we are confident this event will 'WOW' our audience and successfully generate funds to support two philanthropies we are very passionate about: 1) Benefitting military women - who along with their families continue to selflessly serve and sacrifice - by using the funds to provide them with laptop computers. Helping our military women stay connected with their families and continue their education is our way to give back to those who give to all of us by serving our nation and; 2) providing funds for a program supported by the Women's Foundation of Oklahoma to help single moms continue their college education. Children are our future and we the positive role models and support provided by parental education is the solution to a better tomorrow.

However, without support from individuals and organization this will not be possible. The opportunities for supporting these philanthropies and enjoying an 'unforgettable' evening can be viewed on the sponsorship form.

The members and advisors of OSU's American Association of University Women would like for you to mark your calendar for Friday, March 16, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. for "An Evening of Arts and Fashion" in Click Hall of the ConocoPhillips Alumni Center on the OSU campus. We appreciate your support of these philanthropies and hope that you will be able to participate in our exciting event this year. As you are considering your community outreach requests, it is our hope that you will include AAUW's "An Evening of Arts and Fashion."

Please feel free to contact Jeretta Horn Nord, faculty co-advisor of OSU's chapter of AAUW, at with any questions.
