Past Fundraisers

Here's the flyer and some information concerning our most recent fundraiser:  

The Paint and Sip event allowed participants to express their inner artist!  Everyone made a painting of the Golden Gate Bridge and a great time was had by all.  Close to $700 was raised to benefit Soroptimist programs.  In grateful recognition of Grace & Mercy Foundation's providing refreshments and the facilities for the event, a donation was given to the foundation.

Here's the flyer and some information concerning our most recent Bingo fundraiser:

There were approximately 100 participants at our Fall Bingo event. We started with a scrumptious dinner prepared by Cheryl Francis of Grace and Mercy Foundation; a donation was given to the foundation in appreciation of the meal. 

After dinner, President Terri provided contributions on behalf of Soroptimist International of Lodi to two community organizations with programs that are consistent with Soroptimist's mission of improving the lives of women and girls.  She gave a donation to Michelle Thielenhaus of the Salvation Army to benefit the women sheltered at Hope Harbor.  Terri also gave a check to Shereen Hays in support of Lodi House, which aids homeless women and children.

As the event progressed, there were many happy winners of fantastic raffle and Bingo prizes. We very much appreciate all of the sponsors that helped to make this fundraiser a success, including Pietro's, Bueno Italiano Café, Cassandra's Heart & Sole Therapy, Sprouts, Lowe's, Grace and Mercy Foundation. Thanks also to our great Bingo caller, David Rios.
