October 26 2017 is the date of the Ann Arbor Branch’s third annual Mah-Jongg tournament, a benefit for the Digital Divas program.
What is Digital Divas?
“Digital Divas” is an annual one-day event in November and April at Eastern Michigan University. The event is designed to encourage young women in middle and high schools to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Beginning with under 100 attendees, the Digital Divas conference has grown to over 500.
The Ann Arbor AAUW Branch has two Interest Groups that meet monthly to play Mah-Jongg (using the simpler Chinese rules). These interest groups are sponsoring a Mah-Jongg Tournament on October 26, 2017 to raise funds for Digital Divas.
