Soroptimist International of Huntington Beach is an amazing organization! The women that are a part of this nonprofit organization work extremely hard to empower less fortunate women in our community. They have been instrumental in helping our low-income, single parents in our EOPS/CARE Program at Golden West College. The Dolly Wakeham and Live Your Dream Awards not only provide scholarship money, but also emotional support to the recipients. The organization is like an extended family of loving individuals who truly care for the betterment of others. Terry Rose has been a blessing to our students for many years. She has a heart of gold! Everyone in the EOPS/CARE/Guardian Scholars Program is truly grateful for her work and all the work of the committed women in Soroptimist!!
Soroptimists means Best for Women, and this organization is exemplary. The Huntington Beach Chapter is a small group of dedicated women that organize and support women's causes with no paid staff. Their small year-round fundraisers -- from beach walks with their dogs to Bunco nights and fashion shows -- support single mothers returning to schools, combat domestic violence and providing scholarships to exceptional young women throughout their lives. Local, regional and national meetings build camaraderie and lifelong friendships along the way.
