Soroptimist International of Santa Clarita Valley recently presented a $5,500 check to Circle of Hope, Inc.

The donation was a portion of the proceeds raised during Soroptimist International of SCV’s eighth annual Bras for a Cause Denim and Diamond Hoedown fundraiser held Oct, 2 at the Tournament Players Club in Valencia.  

The annual Bras for a Cause features elaborately decorated bras that are auctioned off to raise funds for breast cancer services in the SCV.

The donation will assist Circle of Hope Inc. breast cancer patients and their families by providing financial, emotional and educational support.

In addition, 50 percent of the Soroptimist International of SCV donation will go towards the Circle of Hope Team Pink Program, a cancer awareness and community outreach program, which promotes healthy behaviors associated with cancer risk patients.

Team Pink offers community service opportunities for students focusing on leadership, education, and compassion for people affected by breast cancer. 

Circle of Hope Inc. was founded by breast cancer survivor Colleen Shaffer in 2004.

The nonprofit breast cancer organization provides financial, emotional, and educational support services for uninsured and underinsured individuals with breast cancer, their families, and the local community.

Since 2004 the nonprofit has assisted more than 130 clients and has provided more than $100,000 in financial support.

Soroptimist International of Santa Clarita Valley is a volunteer organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls locally and throughout the world.
