Soroptomis International presents an Elegant Evening

Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra presents its best ever fund-raiser, “An Elegant Evening in Historic Tahoe,” on May a7 at the Horizon Casino Resort. The event added in excess of $15,000 to the service club’s funds, with more than 260 people in attendance.

“Our annual fund-raiser has really come of age this year. The evening was sophisticated, with everyone complimenting us on the event,” said SITS President Doris Groelz. “Brian Farnon and the Tahoe Big Band were a huge success and the dance floor was rarely empty. When guests were not dancing or dining they bid on numerous silent auction items and raffle baskets.”

“We are very grateful to all those who helped make this fund-raiser such a success. Now, we are well set to achieve our community objects,” Groelz said.

The fund-raiser is the traditional high point of Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra’s year and money raised from the event is all directly used in projects such as scholarships, youth literacy and prevention of teen pregnancies.

The club has been particularly successful 2000-2001, increasing its membership by more than 30 percent and growing two small projects into major community-wide events. The first, Women in History, saw six members playing characters from history at Lake Tahoe Community College and the second the delivery of more than 3,600 books to all kindergarten through sixth-graders on the South Shore. The other new project the club has initiated this year is the “On Your Way Award” that recognizes reading improvement in elementary and middle school children
