League To Celebration “Women Who Shape Santa Monica”:

The League of Women Voters of Santa Monica will honor four local women for their outstanding contributions to the welfare of the city on Thursday, March 27.  

The League invites the community to join the organization as they recognize education activist Irene Zivi, Deputy City Manager for Special Projects Kate Vernez, Police Activities League Director Eula Fritz, and the League’s own indomitable Rose Kaufman.

President Ann K.  Williams said the League would be celebrating the 80th anniversary of its organization’s founding. 

“Since 1934, the League of Women Voters of Santa Monica has played an active role in our city’s political life,” Williams said. “The League has advocated for government that is accountable, representative, transparent and responsive.”

Williams said its organization has organized and presented candidates forums to enable all candidates to make their voices heard, regardless of the level of campaign contributions they may have received, all while maintaining a strict policy of non-partisan action.

“The League of Women Voters of Santa Monica has played an important role in the civic education of our community because of our firm belief that a democracy can only thrive when its citizens are fully informed and engaged in the political process,” she said.

The celebration will be held at the Penthouse Terrace of Ocean House, 2107 Ocean Avenue at 7 pm on Thursday, March 27. Hors d’oeuves and beverages will be served.  

Ocean House is located between Pacific Street and Bicknell Avenue.  Metered street parking and beach lot parking are available.

A donation of $40 can be paid at the door or by PayPal at www.lwvsantamonica.org.

RSVP by contacting 310.692.1494 or email league@lwvsantamonica.org.
