The Pearls and Pyjamas dinner raised $7,500 to benefit the Soroptimist International of Central Alberta award programs and projects.
Among them are the Women’s Opportunity Award for a woman heading her household and in post-secondary studies, the Ruby Award for adult volunteerism and the Violet Richardson Award for a teenaged girl’s volunteerism.
Proceeds from the recent eighth annual event will also support the group’s Mother Daughter conference in February, where the subjects of cyber bullying, healthy diets and self defence will be covered.
Links to applications for the programs can be found online at the Soroptimist International of Central Alberta Facebook page.
Soroptimist International is a worldwide organization of business and professional women united to make a difference for women.
