Divas With a Cause

Posted in Soroptimist International on September 8, 2011 by lindacunliffe

The Soroptimist International of Surrey/Delta club is organizing our “Divas with a Cause” fundraiser for 120 women at the Washington Avenue Grill in White Rock on Sunday, October 23, 2011. Our goal is to raise funds for our Women’s Opportunity Award, a program which financially supports women in our community who want to obtain the skills, training or education necessary to improve their employment status and standard of living for themselves and their family. 

Past recipients, many of whom have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic violence, and drug/alcohol abuse, have used the awards to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education.

Soroptimist International clubs are located in 125 countries and territories throughout the world. Members contribute time and financial support to community–based and international projects to improve the education, health, human rights and status of women and girls. Our mandate is to improve the lives of women and girls in our local communities and throughout the world.
