Published on Dec 19, 2023

Ashland Community and Technical College’s Director of Resource Development Brooke Seasor, retiree of education and director of multiple non-profit organizations Norma Meek, and 26 local sponsoring hostesses invite you to attend the fifth annual Women, Wine, Jewels and More fundraiser to support ACTC scholarships for women.

The women-only event will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, January 22, 2024, at The Mill on Winchester Avenue in Ashland. The cost is $50 per person and includes hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction for jewelry, purses and more.

The ACTC Foundation has established a $55,445 “Community Women’s Endowment” with the proceeds since the inaugural Women, Wine, Jewels, and More event in 2019.

Six scholarships have been awarded to date. 

“Norma Meek and I are looking forward to celebrating our 5th annual Women, Wine, Jewels & More event,” Seasor noted. “This event is a fundraiser for scholarships for female college students at ACTC. This is a great networking event established for women in our community to attend and have a fun evening with friends!” 

This year’s hostesses include Mayola Boykin, Holly Canfield, Amanda Clark, Brandy Clark, Terri Branham-Clark, Lori Cooksey, Cheri Daniel, Missy Fannin, Sheila Fraley, Donna Jones, Julie Klein, Ashley Layman, Jane Layman, Alice Martin, Kim McCann, Willie McCullough, Leslee Mcleod, Ann Perkins, April Perry, Samantha Prince, Brooke Elswick-Robinson, Louise Shytle, Kerry Tague, Mae Deana Torgrimson, Heather Vanderen, and Robin Webb. 

“Men can become a “Jewel of a Guy” by sponsoring the event with $100, and businesses can become a “Gem of a Business” by sponsoring the event with $250,” Seasor concluded. 

Those wanting to help support the event can contact one of the sponsoring hostesses for information on how to become a "Jewel of a Guy" or a "Gem of a Business" sponsor.

Reservations are required and limited by January 19. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP online at
