You Don’t Need a Corvette to Get Your Kicks on Our Route 66

by | Dec 28, 2017 | Community

 Soroptimist International of Valencia is looking for a few good Gentlemen and Ladies to get their kicks, at our Gentlemen for a Cause Route 66 event on Sunday, February 25, 2018, 1:00-5:00 at Valencia Country Club.
The proceeds from this year’s event fund the educational grant for Live Your Dream and our Dream It Be It programs for local women and teens.
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards assist women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects. But for Amber, a single mom and one of this year’s recipients, the award is much more than a means for continuing her college degree: It is a way to teach her three-month old daughter that “all things are possible and anything she sets out to do in life the sky is her limit. . . . “ GFAC provided the means for the award.
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls will help girls grow up to be strong, successful, happy adults. Dream It, Be It targets girls in secondary school who face obstacles to their future success. It provides girls with access to professional role models, career education and the resources to live their dreams. But for the 19 Santa Clarita Valley girls who attended this year’s conference and subsequent mentoring sessions, the program meant “gaining my confidence back” and “hearing the different ideas to use for my future career.” GFAC provided the means for the program.
It is donors and sponsors who make GFAC possible. You can help support the dreams of our community women and girls by—
• Sponsoring the event,
• Purchasing an ad in the program,
• Making a tax-deductible donation,
• Purchasing tickets to the event
