Tahoe Soroptimist chapters recognize 9 community members
Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra and Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe recognized nine women for their involvement in the community during a ceremony on March 9 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe.
The three categories of awards were:
The Violet Richardson Award — given to young women in our community whose volunteer efforts include: helping other disadvantaged girls; fighting drug abuse, crime, and violence; cleaning up the environment; and working to end discrimination and poverty.
Live Your Dream Award — Soroptimist’s main program which helps recipients achieve their dreams of a better life. Many have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, domestic and sexual violence, drug and alcohol abuse, death of a spouse or other life challenges.
Ruby Award — this award is given to women who have worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional and/or volunteer work.
These award recipients become eligible to receive a region-level award.
Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra awarded: Kayleen Conard and Destiny Hursh the Violet Richardson Award; Vanessa Ruiz the Live Your Dream Award; and Paula Peterson the Ruby Award.
Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe awarded: Tatum Bunnett, Madison Evans and Elizabeth Krolicki the Violet Richardson Award; Charlene Jones the Live Your Dream Award; and Marissa Muscat the Ruby Award.
Both chapters congratulate these award recipients and thank them for being stellar inspirations to our community.
