News Release – December 2017 Holiday Gifting
2017 was a banner year of new memberships and community giving for Soroptimist International of Saguaro Foothills. In September the club participated for the first time in the Anthem Outlet “Shopping Extravaganza” fund raiser. A beautiful desert day that brought out many shoppers to the mall. Early Christmas shopping was in full swing. SISF sold the most tickets to this event and will benefit from a portion of the proceeds to continue to support our projects that help women and children in the Cave Creek and Carefree communities.
On December 5, 2017 SISF elfes could be found stuffing much needed personal products in holiday bags for families at the Foothills Food Bank. There was a flurry of wrapping of gifts chosen from the “wish lists” of two Adopt-a-Families also sponsored by The Foothills Food Bank. Holiday gifting is one of the club’s favorite projects and this year’s early morning meeting was jump started with Christmas music and a rousing Soroptimist version of the 12 Days of Christmas. Last year’s “Live Your Dream Award” recipients were gifted a Christmas tree, Christmas dinner and gifts for their families.
Soroptimist would like to thank all those who participated in our fund raising events in 2017. Your participation helped support our “Live Your Dream” and “Dream It Be It” Awards along with our community service projects benefitting women and children. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year in 2018.
