Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Arkansas's Ratification of the 19th Amendment

Did you know Arkansas was the 12th state to ratify the 19th Amendment? Please join the League of Women Voters of Washington County as we proudly mark the 100th Anniversary of that milestone this summer. We'll celebrate our past, present and future at "A More Perfect Democracy," a fundraiser and party at 6 p.m., Saturday, July 27th, at Mermaids in Fayetteville.

Seats at this event will be limited, so make plans now! Buy tickets or make a donation by clicking on the red "Register for 100th" button at the top right of this event info. Tickets are $50 each and include heavy appetizers, beer and wine.

Your name will appear as a sponsor on our program, on screen at the event and in emails and promotions. A Century Sponsorship is $500, and it includes four tickets as well as reserved seating.

Unable to attend but want to support our work? You can make a donation in the amount of your choice instead of buying a ticket. (Please note: Tickets and donations to the League are not tax-deductible.)

Help our local League enter the next century going strong! We recognize that not all women were included in the suffrage movement and that we did not create a "Perfect Democracy" 100 years ago. We have a long way to go; help us get there!
