10th Annual Girls Night Out - "My Favorite Things"

On Friday, November 6, 2015, we will be celebrating the best of Girls Night Out from the past ten years with a few of “My Favorite Thing,” as we gather for an evening of holiday spirit, shopping and fellowship. This year’s committee has planned a dazzling schedule for the women-only event that features a plated dinner, silent auction, cash bar, and holiday decorating demonstration. Bring your holiday shopping list and shop with the nearly twenty vendors from local retail establishments. The popular 50/50 bead raffle will complete the evening’s lineup. Proceeds from Girls’ Night Out support SITC’s signature project—Partners In Care—and other “Best for Women” projects. Get your tickets online before October 30.

Our 2014-2016 Signature Project

Partners In Care, was founded to help older adults remain independent in their own homes. More than 2,600 volunteer members at four sites across Maryland help each other in a formalized program based on reciprocity. Using the service-exchange model, people contribute their time and skills to the ‘community pool’ to accomplish what needs to be done. Every person is asked to participate to become part of the solution. In this way, assets already in the community are identified and utilized, accomplishing more than in traditional models. People are empowered to remain independent.

Partners in Care Upper Shore connects older adults who need transportation to volunteers who will drive them to doctor’s appointments, the grocery store and other places.

“It’s neighbors helping neighbors,” said Pam O’Brien, program coordinator for the Upper Shore.

Why Women and Girls?

Soroptimist means “best for women” and that’s what we strive to be—an organization of women at their best helping other women to be their best. As a volunteer organization of business and professional women we feel uniquely qualified to help women and girls live their dreams.

It’s true that both men and women live in poverty, face discrimination and must overcome obstacles. But throughout history—in every country in the world—women and girls face additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.

By initiating club projects that benefit women and girls, and by honoring women who help women and girls, Soroptimist clubs and members improve the status of women and girls. Soroptimist projects and programs aid women economically, and empower them to make positive changes in their lives and their communities.
