Zonta Club Honors Winner of Carmen Sarro Award
On Saturday, May 15, 2021, Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley held its 36th Annual Women in Service celebration via Zoom.
Seventeen fabulous women volunteers nominated by local non-profits were honored at the event, and one was chosen as the Carmen Sarro Award recipient. The award recognizes and celebrates the life of Carmen Sarro, a two time president of the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley, who was known for her dedication and enthusiasm for service to her community.
This year, Sheril Porter from Single Mothers Outreach was honored with the Carmen Sarro Award. Sheril has chaired Empowering HeArts for several years, helping to raise needed funds for programs benefiting single moms. She is the chair of Make a Mother’s Day to celebrate moms and inspire them to perform their most important job…being a mom. Sheril also helps moms to compose resumes, dress for success and feel confident at interviews.
Sheril has also volunteered with March of Dimes, Toys for Tots, Cerebral Palsy, Project Angel Food and Special Olympics. She is now a hospice volunteer. Sheril richly deserves the Carmen Sarro Award. Congratulations Sheril!
