What a grand, albeit different, evening it was as many of our members met, dawning amazing SITS Facemasks made by Janna and social distancing to keep all of us and our community healthy. Wendy’s yard was beautiful and the weather was amazing. Kim graciously thanked her Board for all of the work and support as we “zoomed” through the later part of our year. After having to cancel our 31st Annual Elegant Evening “in person” event we weren’t sure how the year would turn out. But it turned out fantastic! Our online auciton remained a “go” and we utilized our Facebook page to live stream videos during our event time adding in a couple of contests for those following us. People were bidding from near and afar and all in all, we made a welcoming amount of money to fund programs for the 2020-2021 year that enhance the lives of women and youth in our community and the world. Nothing, not even that darn COVID slowed down the efforts of our club.
This year’s installation theme was She-roes as we are all superheroes. Much fun was to be had as each Board member was identified with their superhero counterpart. Each Board member was presented with their own superhero cape as well, beautifully adorned with a Soroptimist “S” on the back thanks to our Brenda Heldoorn. Don’t be surprised if you see any of these ladies, with their super human powers flying through out beautiful Tahoe skies as they fight for justice and good for all people!
