The Soroptimist International is a women’s service organization, established in 1921, to help improve the lives of women and girls. The Soroptimist International of the Greater Santa Clarita Valley was chartered in April of this year. Their mission: Women in Crisis, Women’s Health Issues and Celebrating Women. “I look forward to debuting our new club, Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley, which has 67 local business women along with 14 Soroptimisters and distinguished friends,” said Rose Chegwin, marketing chair for the event. “This overwhelming number of new members proves that women want to give of themselves to help other women and girls become everything they can be.”
A portion of the Wine Affair’s proceeds will benefit the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital to help women who are unable to afford detection services. “I’m delighted that the event will support our breast imaging center’s ability to provide screenings for those who are uninsured or underinsured,” said Diana Vose, president of the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Health Foundation.
