AWJ DFW Calendar

June 2006

You are invited to the Association for Women Journalists' 2006 scholarship and awards banquet on Friday, June 16 at Hackberry Creek Country Club, 1901 W. Royal Lane, Irving. The silent auction and cash bar start at 6:30 p.m., dinner at 7:30 p.m.

The speaker is Camelia Entekhabi-Fard, a journalist who was jailed for three months in Iran for her provocative reporting for reformist newspapers. Now based in New York, she has reported for various news organizations since then and has recently written a book about her experiences in jail.

AWJ will present its Courage Award to Lyn Berman, executive director of Attitudes& Attire, a Dallas-based nonprofit organization that provides business clothing and training workshops for women with little personal or financial support. Last year the organization helped 1,600 people, including 260 displaced Hurricane Katrina victims.

AWJ also will recognize this year's five college scholarship winners and present awards in the Vivian Castleberry Awards Competition.

Tickets are $40 each or $300 per table of eight.
