GRAWA members enjoy holiday gathering

More than 70 members of the Greater Rochester Association for Women Attorneys gathered on Dec. 15 at the American Association of University Women mansion on East Avenue.

“We had a great mix of young attorneys and long-time GRAWA members,” GRAWA President Kari Smoker said. “There was lots of talking and laughter — a sure sign of a successful party.”

Attendance was free to members, but donations were collected to contribute to a full scholarship for a female student’s participation in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy — a local program providing experience-based entrepreneurship opportunities, allowing young people to transform ideas into real businesses.
