Soroptimist International Elk Grove has added new opportunities to Fundraising in our Community to deal with COVID-19 in-person restrictions.
This year we added:
- Pie Fundraiser (November 2020)
- Soroptimist Hats and Visors (Ongoing)
- Avon Soroptimist (February-March 2021)
Our primary fundraising activity is our Annual See’s Candies Store Fundraiser. In 2020, we did not sell Boutique items due to COVI-19 social distancing restrictions. We did, however, have a very generous member of our community allow us to use their vacant storefront for the 2 weeks our our sale! There were some bumps in the road with ordering/delivery issues, however, we were able to safely sell those delicious chocolates and brittle! Our community came out to support us and we are very grateful!
Big Day of Giving – Coming up on May 6, 2021. This is our 5th year in a row participating in Big Day of Giving – an annual 24-hour community-wide movement that unites the region’s nonprofit sector to help raise unrestricted funds for the organizations that strengthen the capital area. Since 2013, the giving day has generated $52 million for more than 600 local nonprofits!
PAUSED – We also host an Annual Bunco Party to raise funds for our programs. Click HereClick Here
PAUSED – Martinis and Merriment at the SES Hall — We have had to pause this year’s fundraiser. We hope to be able to host it again in 2022.
