Women’s Auxiliary

The Equest Women’s Auxiliary (WAUX) was founded in 1986 by Louise Griffeth with the purpose of supporting and promoting Equest. Today, it has more than 250 members and has raised more than $10M for Equest.

Each Fall, WAUX hosts its signature event, the Women’s Auxiliary Luncheon and Style Show, chaired by a prominent leader in the Dallas community.

In 2000, in honor of its founder who has championed the cause of Equest since its inception, WAUX created the Louise Griffeth Award for Community Service, recognizing an individual for their vision, commitment and leadership in the community.

It is easy to get involved with WAUX and help strengthen Equest. The membership dues for Women’s Auxiliary are:

General Membership: $50 annually
Patron Membership : $100 annually
Lifetime Membership: $1,000 one-time fee
