The North Augusta Junior Women’s league will host its annual Roasting on the River, an oyster roast and silent auction on Saturday, March 25. Our event will take place at Boeckh Park in Hammond’s Ferry, by the banks of the beautiful Savannah River. Our fundraising goal is $15,000. At the event, you will enjoy all you can eat oysters, barbecue nachos, drinks, etc. We'll have live entertainment by Bethany Davis and her band. A variety of silent auction and raffle items will also be available to support our fundraising efforts.
The North Augusta Junior Women’s League (NAJWL) is a 501(c)(3) organization that works tirelessly to assist teachers, aid schoolchildren and promote literacy awareness through our Reading Readiness Program in local elementary schools. Our Reading Readiness Program allows us to donate approximately 4,000 books per year to each child in third through fifth grades in local schools and daycares. In reaching our fundraising goal, we will be able to continue our book distributions and hopefully increase the amount of books we donate. Reaching our goal will also enable our organization to continue our ability to award college scholarships for high school seniors, meet teacher needs, provide necessities for underprivileged school children and donate Christmas gifts for families that would otherwise go without.
