New Soroptimists in Wine Country

Looking for Live Your Dream candidates



There is a new Soroptimist Club in our area, Soroptimist International Oakmont Wine Country. Soroptimist International is a volunteer organization for women committed to improving the lives of women and girls through programs leading to economic empowerment.

The Soroptimist International Oakmont Wine Country club is participating in the Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award. The Live Your Dream Awards are cash awards given to motivated women who are the primary financial supporters of their families. The recipients are women who are seeking to improve their lives by gaining additional skills, training, or education but do not have the resources to do so. These cash awards are meant to offset any costs associated with education, including tuition, books, supplies, childcare or transportation. SI Oakmont Wine Country will be giving up to $1,000 to the chosen recipient or recipients.

The most challenging aspect of this program is making sure eligible women are aware of this valuable resource. We would like you to share this opportunity with someone you know who would benefit from this program. All applications are confidential.

Interested applicants, or anyone with questions can contact Denise Bickert, Soroptimist Live Your Dream Chair, at deniseb.siowc@gmail.com.

The new club is also looking for new members. You do not need to reside in Oakmont; the club welcomes members from Kenwood and Glen Ellen and surrounding areas. If you are interested in becoming a member please contact Club President Janet Flink at janetf.siowc@gmail.com.
