It was a St. Patrick’s Day full of “Mischief and Malarkey” at the annual Soroptimist International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley fashion show.

The theme of this year’s show was “Mischief and Malarkey.”

The St. Patrick’s Day fashion show featured the traditional Irish Dance team of Maura Corbett, Rachel Sanders and Katie Roland.

The trio have performed together since 1989. They have competed for 18 years throughout the United States, Ireland and Scotland and have won awards in national and world competitions.

The fashion show featured community members as models and fashions from J. David, OutWest, Cache, Luscious Soul, Propinquities, The Closet on Main, Fresh, One Savvy Girl and J. Serraino.

Emcee of the event was Ed Masterson who sported a green tie in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

“Welcome to the Emerald City,” he said, referring to the green lightening that flooded the Grand Ballroom in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

“Today, when I look around this room, I am very happy to be here today,” he said. “This is a room filled with amazing, beautiful people.”

Sandi Naba served as chairwoman of the fashion show.

“It’s wonderful to see everyone here today,” she told the audience of more than 300 guests.
Sue Reynolds, president of Soroptimist International of Greater SCV, explained how the funds raised at the event benefit women and girls in the SCV and worldwide.

“The work that we are doing is so incredibly important,” said Reynolds. “While we are putting on these events it is important for you to know that the money raised funds our scholarship programs and other programs to help women in the Santa Clarita Valley and around the world.”

Among the scholarships and awards supported by Soroptimist International of Greater SCV:

The College of the Canyons  Educating Women to Lead Scholarship.

The Violet Richardson Award to honor girls 14 to 17 for their volunteer service in the SCV or abroad.

The Women’s Opportunity Award celebrates women who have faced severe hardships. The award is presented to women who are enrolled in a training program or undergraduate degree program.

The Jacquie Petersen Endowment Award honors girls 6-17 in the SCV improving their lives through dance.

“We are so excited that we can help women and their families in the Santa Clarita Valley and around the world to make their lives better,” said Reynolds. “Our mission this year has been, ‘Education, a Step Up to Growth.”
