Soroptimist International of La Jolla is Celebrating 70 years of educating, empowering and enabling women in our community socially and economically
Second Bucket List Bash to focus on women in the military and their transition into civilian life
If you haven’t heard about Soroptimist International of La Jolla, you are missing out on the wonderful work they do to educate, empower and enable women in our community. We know that for a fact! After all, the organization was a key component in creating the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research. We have been partners now for almost 25 years! “The group of women that belongs to Soroptimist International of La Jolla is small in number but immense in dedication and imprint on the lives of women. Twenty two years ago SILJ was instrumental in founding the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women’s Health Research and their organization has been our greatest ally in the years that followed. We are proud to be one of the recipients of their generosity and to support all that they do”, comments Dr. Carole Banka, Co-chair of the Howell Foundation.
To be able to support social and economic empowerment for women in their community programs, Soroptimist International of La Jolla will be hosting the Bucket List Bash on May 13th. Now in its second year, the proceeds will be used to support Veteran and Active Military Women. The emphasis of this program includes volunteering and hands-on mentoring to promote successful transition to civilian life in order to meet the unique needs of military women.
“Soroptimist International of La Jolla is known for our ability to identify and support needs in our community – by our hands on participation, leadership and monetary contributions. When we work together to support a group, we exponentially make a difference in the lives of women in our community”, comments Diana Hill, 2017 President for the organization. “Military women give so much of their lives so the rest of us can have the freedom we enjoy today! The least we could do is help them transition into our community”, she concludes.
So make sure you register and help celebrate both, the organization’s 70th anniversary and the women who serve in our military:
When: Saturday, May 13th
Where: La Jolla, CA.
Time: 6:30 PM
