Spring is in full swing and for Soroptimist International of the Pahrump Valley (SIPV), that means it’s time to shine a spotlight on some of our favorite women as they strut their stuff at the nonprofit’s annual Spring Fashion Show.
The spring fashion show, set for next Saturday, is one of the local Soroptimist Club’s major fundraisers, with proceeds to help the organization continue its vision of a world where women and girls “…have access to resources and opportunities.” to reach their full potential and live their dreams”.
Soroptimist International, as its name suggests, is an international organization with a mission to improve the lives of girls and women around the world. National programs such as Live Your Dream and Dream It, Be for Girls are hosted by clubs in more than 120 countries.
These national programs are combined with various additional efforts at the club level.
Here in the Pahrump Valley, the Soroptimist Club has been making a positive impact on the community for 17 years. Such as the group’s Human Trafficking Awareness Community Forums and the annual Women’s Fair combine with the Soroptimist Ruby Award Club Laurel Society Award to create a strong lineup of programs designed to provide a variety of benefits.
To help fund these efforts, the volunteer-based SIPV hosts several fundraisers throughout the year, including two Bunko Night sessions, the annual Mardi Gras celebration, a year-round flocking initiative, and of course, the Spring Fashion Show, the neighborhood corner.
“Come join us for food, fun, games and laughter,” the SIPV press release encouraged. “The event is open to the public and will include a silent auction, voting awards and door prizes.”
There is no doubt that attendees will see an item or a few want to dress themselves while watching the fashion show and they will not be disappointed. There will be a “pop-up” boutique at the event, with featured clothing and accessories available for purchase. The styles are also offered in a variety of sizes, giving customers plenty of options that afternoon.
The Spring Fashion Show will be held on Saturday, May 13 at Sanders Family Winery, 3780 Kellogg Road. Doors open at noon.
Tickets are $25 each, which includes a light meal, and can be reserved in advance or purchased at the door. To reserve a seat or for more information, contact Event Chair Maria Apodaca-Shady at 775-462-2116 or by email at Maliafirstname.lastname@example.org
