Annual AAUW whale watch tickets available

Tickets are available for the annual whale watch sponsored by the American Association of University Women’s Maui Branch. The cruise will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. March 1 at Maalaea Harbor aboard the Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Odyssey.

The event is the AAUW’s major fundraiser for three $2,000 scholarships, which are awarded annually to students enrolled at the University of Hawaii Maui College and who are pursuing a degree or a certificate in areas of study, including the UH-MC Education Centers and the University of Hawaii Centers on Maui.

Whale watch tickets are $50 each and include complimentary pupu, talks about humpback whale behavior and characteristics given by Pacific Whale Foundation marine naturalists, door prizes such as gift certificates and a no-host bar. Check-in time will be 2 p.m.

For tickets, contact Terry Rosenstock at (415) 816-2671 or terryrosenstock@gmail.com. Cash donations for the scholarship fund are welcome. AAUW’s mission is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy.
