Members of Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley celebrate with the “Victory” trophy for the largest net gain in membership.

A large contingent of Soroptimists from the Greater Santa Clarita Valley attended the Soroptimist International regional conference in Long Beach over the weekend of April 21. 

More than 200 regional Soroptimists were on hand to observe the Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley club achieve a multitude of top performance awards.

Soroptimist International of Greater SCV is one of the largest clubs in the Soroptimist organization, with more than 75 members. 

One of the accolades achieved was the Victory trophy for largest net gain in membership. 

The club’s signature fundraiser, the Wine Affair:  Sip, Stroll & Savor the Sounds event, won recognition for both fundraising and public awareness success to benefit women’s health. 

This year’s Wine Affair is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 21 at Valencia Town Center. 

The club will also hold the annual “High-Heel-a-Thon” to “stomp out” domestic and teen-dating violence on Saturday, July 14 in downtown Newhall.

In addition to the learning and celebrations of the conference, elections were held where SCV residents and Soroptimist International of Greater SCV members Dora Zavala and Darlene Gandara, were installed as Regional Governor-Elect and Regional District Director, respectively.

The most significant recognition achieved by the Soroptimist International of SCV club is the “Governor’s Award” for top overall club performance. It acknowledges success on the local level, as well as participation in the international programs conducted by Soroptimist International worldwide, to improve the lives of women and girls. 

Many members of Soroptimist International of Greater SCV were individually named “Distinguished Soroptimists.”
