Women for Abilene Christian University to host dinner

For immediate release
Feb. 19, 2004

The Women for Abilene Christian University will host its 21st annual WACU Ladies' Dinner on Tuesday, Feb. 24, during ACU's 86th annual Bible Lectureship.  The dinner will be at 5 p.m. and will take place in the Multipurpose Room of Hillcrest Church of Christ.

The theme for this year's dinner comes from Romans 10:17, and this year's speaker will be Jane Varner Beard, member of ACU’s Board of Trustees and local attorney.  She will be speaking on her love of reading.  ACU singing group "The Ligh"” will provide the entertainment.

"The purpose of the event is to promote goodwill and friendship and to act as an evening of fellowship and entertainment for the ladies on campus for Lectureship," said Betty Shipp, president of WACU.

All women are invited to attend; tickets are $11 and are available at Abilene Educational Supply, the WACU Jennings House and the ticket windows in the McGlothlin Campus Center from Feb. 22 to Feb. 24.

"This dinner began as a place for women to go when their husbands went to the annual men’s dinner, and it evolved into an annual affair because the women liked it so much, and we want to continue that tradition," Shipp said.
